Walk-in workshop: the colours of Eggleston
What technical aspects do you have to deal with when you apply colour to a photograph? How does it affect light or contrast in the image? What is the difference between a black and white photo and the same photograph in colour?

In this workshop, you will work with some of William Eggleston's most popular photographs and use watercolour paint and coloured pencils to experiement with the colour composition. Compare your end result with Eggleston's original: what is the difference and what does your application of colour do to the image?
