When I started working with digital photography about 20 years ago it fascinated me what you could do by borrowing existing pixels and moving them around. Over the years I have done both repairs (from simple to complex) and colorization where that could enhance an image. There are only a couple of of samples here, but I hope to add more in the near future.
Many times retouching requires scanning the original print of the image, assessing the level of restoration required, doing the restoration/retouching, and then either returning the retouched digital file to the client, having prints made or having the restored images designed into a book for printing. These books make great gifts for family and friends.
If you have some treasured photos that need restoration or retouching I would be more than willing to take a look and estimate the time involved for your project. You can e-mail me or call me at 401-864-4250 for more information.
