I’ve just opened this shiny new website and it comes complete with a blog! I think it would be fun to use this space to show you what I’m working on and how the projects are progressing. I’ve got a good stash of old and damaged prints to work from, and they should give me a chance to show off each kind of service I offer through the restoration shop. If you have any special requests, let me know! I can fix tears, cracks, water damage, fading, or simply remove red eye from overzealous flashes. My favorite work is colorization, so you’ll probably see quite a bit of that as we go along.
Here’s my first feature photo:
I think the first thing to do will be to adjust the color and bring it up to black and white. I could leave it sepia tone, but even then I would want to make some adjustments so that the faces aren’t quite so washed out. Oh, and I should straighten it up a little, too.
That’s better! Next task will be to clean up the edges, get rid of the tear behind the boy’s head, and do some general cleanup of spots and dust. I’ll post the results tomorrow.
