Keith James loves restoring things. His skills with Adobe Photoshop allow him to take old, neglected, damaged photographs and not only repair them, but bring black and white photos back to life through the art of colorization. Use the slider bars on the images below to see the old versus the new.

Born and raised in southern California, Keith now resides happily on a small farm in northeast Indiana and has photographed professionally since 2010. To learn more about Keith’s work, visit KeithJamesPhoto.comFacebook, or Instagram.
