As a photographer I took an alternate route. I started with digital but ended up with analoge film. To digitise all that film I had to buy a good scanner. And while I was at it why not start digitising the collection of historic photo’s I already accumulated throughout the years.
Couple of years later I wanted to learn new image editing software. But I had to set some sort of goal. At that time colourising black and white photos became popular and that seemed a nice project to learn this new software.
