A great way to celebrate your mum’s birthday is with a photo restoration gift. Niamh got in touch with us again with a new photo. This time for her Mum’s birthday she’s had this lovely old photograph restored and coloured using her mum’s advice on clothing colours. The longer I worked on this photo the harder I chuckled. It features her Grandfather with her very young Mum posing… with a monkey… just look at that monkeys face! This photo was printed on our 300gsm Museum rough paper.
The rips and creases in this photo were no issue to us and with her mum’s help the colour advise was a real help… we don’t need to know as we enjoy a little artistic license from time to time.
🙉Thanks Again Niamh!
Kerry is looking to create a collage from a few old family photos. She supplied us with a selection of black and white photos. This one is of her Grandfather. We’ve spent a while spicing up those old images with a splash of colour. Since these are going to be displayed together colours have been selected that might not be true to life but will really stand out when viewed as a collection.
Stay tuned for more posts on this! If you have a project you’d like us to get involved in don’t hesitate to get in touch using the button below.
Paul got in touch looking to brighten up this photo. He supplied a great quality scan which made the process very easy. I made a quick adjustment to the levels, touched up a couple tiny marks and had a play with the sharpening before getting stuck into the hand colouring. I really love the character in this one.
If you have a precious family photo you would like spruced up, why not get in touch!
On the 2nd March 1957 Barbara Shorey married Peter Whiteland at the All Saints Church Belvedere in the London Borough of Bexley.
This incredibly well looked after photograph from the day was sent to me by their grandaughter Amy for colourisation. Amy also happened to have a wonderful little card listing the details of colours and flowers featured which made the final result a little more authentic
Thank you for letting me work on your precious family photograph Amy!
