For the past 10 years I have been working on my family tree using popular Genealogy website Ancestry. This gives you the ability to share with family members… who in turn began to offer up information. In time I became the one who looks after the family photos. It wasn’t long before albums, carrier bags, suitcases and biscuit tins of photos started to appear. It’s my job… no… duty to make sure these are not lost. So I began scanning, cataloging and storing them on hard drives, DVDs and now in the cloud.
Whilst scanning an occasional gem of a photo would appear, sometimes a little worn, other times nearly beyond repair. Luckily I have spent over 15 years working as a photographer and obviously not without the latest version of Photoshop. I decided to tidy a couple of photos up, repair what I could. That lead to attempting to manually colour some of the photos. I added them to my social media accounts and the feedback was amazing! In fact, I had other people digging out their family photos for me to work my magic on.
