Got something a little different for today…sometimes I like to dabble in vintage photo restoration in Photoshop. The above example is one of the best pieces I’ve ever done. The process involves the Hue/Saturation tool for coloring, lots of saving, and lots of detailed erasing. If you want a more exact detailed process on how to do it, e-mail me.
I downloaded the original vintage picture from an online friend of mine. You can view the original picture here. This is a public domain photo.
Now about the lady in picture…that is Anna May Wong, and is the first Asian American to become an international movie star. She was also known as a fashion icon. Her breakthrough performance was with beside Marlene Dietrich in Shanghai Express in 1932. Read more about this amazing and trailblazing actress here.
