#Funwithphotoshop - Just took a random shot out of the window of the clouds and decided to let my imagination take over.
Working on some more colourisation. I’m pretty happy with how this image has turned out. I extended the image upwards and downwards slightly. Re-creating the building was interesting.

More colouring in today. I love freelancing for a living.
Black and White images turned to Colour with extra Depth!
In the UK we recently heard that the ancient port of Portsmouth is to cease building Naval ships after more than 800 years of history behind it.
I decided to create a short video about the docks and the history behind them. The problem is that there is no footage from the 1800’s! No problem, I used a lot of imagery including a lot of black and white turned to colour in order to modernise them.
You can see a video of me working on an image here!
Not only did I colour the images I separated different depths into layers and moved them independently of each other which gives the appearance of 3D!
After seeing this article in the Daily Mail about the Titanic being coloured I decided to show how I would do it. No offence to the person that coloured the images, but I feel that the colour is too over the top and simplified. Just because it is being turned into a colour image, doesn’t mean it has to be ‘colourful’ - the key is to use in moderation and focus on realism.

Taking advantage of the lovely weather.
As you may know, a part of my freelance capability is aerial film. I’m able to get angles that were only dreamt of a few years ago and weren’t even possible by using a helicopter. With the cinestar 8 I am able to get aerial footage from afar or even close up and personal.
Please see the example below of a video I have done for Northfields house, which shows how using aerial photography can really add to your video production.
The lovely weather and calm wind has been perfect flying weather as of late. Why not get in touch and we’ll make a fantastic promotional video for your company.
Another colourisation time lapse.
Watch as I turn this black and white image into a dramatic colour illustration for my clients publication.
Did a doodle in Photoshop - didn’t really have an aim, just started drawing and came up with this - I guess it just lives in my head.
All done in about 2-3 hours with just a mouse in photoshop - maybe I should buy a tablet?
More colourisation today. This time a 1940’s era ODEON cinema image. It’s great to have the continued work from my publisher client, every image is interesting and unique.
I’ve just completed work on the Aurora Market Research Banner.
The banner is a great way to quickly broadcast what exactly the company does at a glance, which means you don’t have to read through bulk text to understand the company. This is especially important on the home page as you need to ‘hook’ your visitors quickly before they lose interest.
In the event that the site is being viewed on a mobile device without flash, a still image alternative will appear which gives you the best of both worlds.

Colourising another image. This time it’s a practice landing with Americans for Normandy. Some of the footage got lost at the end so I fade to the final image.
