Photos by Grace Dickinson

  Grace Dickinson, a native of the Glen Lake area, began photographing at a young age as she accompanied her father Fred Dickinson over the dunes.  She learned her father's techniques both with the camera and in the darkroom, as well as the art of hand coloring the black and white photos. They also shared the same eye for composition and a love for Leelanau County and The Sleeping Bear Dunes.

Today she continues to operate the Dickinson Photo Gallery in its same historic location on the south side of Little Glen Lake offering both historic and modern day photography for sale.

**hand colored photo The technique of hand coloring was widely used in previous years. The same process was also used in tinting/hand coloring high school senior pictures. The paint is transparent and oil based. The colors are applied to the black and white photograph with cotton and blended over the image without obscuring the image. The detail work in small area is done photo colored pencils. Hand colored landscape photos have a pleasing effect with its muted shades of color.
