Restoration

RESTORATION / ENHANCEMENT / AIRBRUSHING

Have you a treasured old photograph of a loved or one of your ancestors, or a favourite snap in the family album?

Old photos are easily damaged and many may be faded, torn or water damaged, or just need some enhancement to make them suitable for framing (Click through the examples below).

At Carver Photography we can use our skills as Graphic Artists to bring your images to life.

Trust us to turn your treasured photographs into timeless works of art, which will be enjoyed by generations to come.

ENHANCEMENT and AIRBRUSHING

Your own photos of family events, weddings, portraits etc. can be enhanced by our expert editors to make them even more stunning.

We can give your images a digital makeover, using the same techniques used to 'airbush' magazine photos

The common problems we fix are:

Removing blemishes & imperfections
Digital slimming and figure sculpting
Removing/Retouching uneven skin tones and marks
Smoothing skin tones, removing pores and spots
Retouching fine lines, wrinkles & freckles
Removing or fading tattoos
Removing red eye
Whitening teeth and fixing dental imperfections

HOW WE DO IT

Your original images are safe, we simply photograph or copy them using specialised techniques that we have refined over many years.

We work on copies of the original using similar techniques used by magazine art departments to airbrush photos. Scratches, marks, tears and fading are overcome by skilled retouching methods. After this process, we match the tones of the original image with the new prints.
We can present the restored photo to you, either as a digital file, or as a photographic print on archival paper for the best possible results.
When you get your images back they will look as good as the original when it was first taken, or probably better.

In some cases your original photograph may be in perfect condition but it is the only one you have, or it needs some re-editing and airbrushing to improve the composition. Why not take advantage of our facilities, as we use the finest optics to reproduce and enhance your originals.

All requests for our Restoration or Enhancement services are assessed before we undertake any work. We will offer a quote before we begin. No job is too big or too small. We take pride in recreating your images with expert care.
