Early 1900’s Negative restored and Printed
Have you ever found a box of images, slides, or old films hidden away and not sure what to do with them?
We may have an answer for you…..
One of our clients brought in this B&W negative and couldn’t find any where that provided a service to have it printed. I am always under the thinking that we should preserve the history of our families and surely create a digital version of the media. This one would be a little tricky…….
- it was a 5×7 B&W negative and I didn’t have a scanner that the negative would fit in.
- There wouldn’t be any profiles for this type of film for a conversion
- I needed to do this while the client waited so that they could keep their precious family history safe
- I never recommend sending anything like to away to have copies made (you just can’t replace it if something happens in shipping or mail)
I made a quick decision to use a macro lens and my 36 megapixel camera to create a 100 meg digital version of the negative. Then convert the digital file in photoshop and in less than 5 minutes my client was viewing her negative on our studio monitor and couldn’t believe her eyes.
The best part is that she was able to have copies made and share the new family treasure with her family.
Preserve Your Family History
Have you ever found an old family photograph that you absolutely love…but find it in damaged condition? Let us restore your treasure so that you can keep it protected for years to come. Have copies made so that each family member will have something to pass down to future generations. And archive it so that you can have more immeasurable prints made later if needed. As a portrait studio we know the value placed on old photographs of past family members. We believe that the importance of being able to pass down a cherished photograph to future generations is immeasurable. Restoring damaged or faded photographs is truly an art, and takes the skill of an expert. Bring us your photographs and we will create a new file from which to work. (We will never do any work on your original photograph.) We will then have one of our artists closely examine your photograph and determine the best method for repairing the damage. When the damage has been repaired and your prints have been created, we will archive your images and keep them on file at the studio for 3 months at no charge. We would strongly recommend that you purchase a CD with your archived image on it, so that you will have the restored photograph should you ever need more printed. Your original photograph will be returned to you with your completed order.
