    I've picked up quite a few neg retouching techniques from old retouching manuals from the 1940s and earlier. I've got a couple of these, but they're in storage, so I don't have them handy, but I've posted about them before, so you might try a search on "retouching manual" or something like that to find some of the earlier threads on this topic.

    I used to know a woman who had been a hand retoucher in New York in the 1980s. Mostly large format Ektachromes I recall, advertising stuff.

    i used to retouch using an old adams retouching desk and leads.
    see if you can google or contact new york institute of photography
    and find out if you can get a class manual that covers retouching.
    they are a online and mail order school which has offered professional photography
    and retouching classes since the 1920s or eariler.
    they were one of the original photography schools, at least in the usa.

    Thanks Stephen.

    I think I posted this in the past but it got lost, here's a rough guide to hand colouring.

    The prints of the three stages were done during a lecture I gave.

    I'll stick it in the articles section here sometime, shows you can make Colour prints on Harman/Ilford papers

    Very important topic. If we're going to bash Photoshop, we need to understand the analogue alternatives. This ought to be a sticky. Strange, but I don't remember a similar thread in the past.

    You can't bash photoshop for the myriads of possibilities it provides to do what in the analogue world was (and is) often a messy, always a very time consuming and tiresome business.

    I can and do understand why people don't like digital (why esle would i shoot film!). But PS as a tool is simply fantastic! Unbashable!

    I learned quite a bit from the Kodak Photographic Retouching book. It covers negative and print retouching in B&W and color.

    As for hand coloring, you might get some inspiration from this collection of colorized photos in the Shorpy Historic Photo Archive:

    "I don't know, maybe we should disinvent color, and we could just shoot Black & White." - David Burnett in 1978
