Evaluating the "Celtics" Photo Repair

We enjoyed repairing this fairly old photo of a young man being honored with an achievement award by the Boston Celtics and hope you enjoy watching the video below as we point out areas that will need more than a few repair touch-ups!

As you will see in the "before photo repair" video below, the background presents the biggest problem. The door in the pictures background needs to be reconstructed and several facial areas need attention. Several areas in the photo have scratches and pen marks as well as tonal distoration around several of the subjects.

Don't miss "the spoon"



TRANSCRIPT OF VIDEO

I'd like to get back with  you real quick about the black and white photo you sent me of your husband with the Boston Celtic's after he won the award.

I'd like to review with you some of the concerns I have and primarily...what I'm looking at right now.

...let me zoom in and that might  give us a better idea  of what we're looking at.

 The concerns that I have right now, some of the facial features are going to need a lot of attention as you can see in this area.

The door itself has a lot of damage and once you actually get into the photograph and get it scanned...in a high resolution...you start picking some of this up.

You can see where the image itself has lost all color along the line here and the image is completely gone...up in this area. Lets move around here a little ...you can follow me around here to see what I'm talking about.

The young lady right here...probably the main thing that concerns me is the...tonal color change.

This particular area around her face , you can see we have a little bit of work that has to be done there
...and the gentleman, the very tall gentleman in the top right hand corner you can see his hair, his neck and the left eye have to be done   and we're picking up a little more of the tonal distortion in this area, same as that found in the young lady.

I'm going to zoom out a little to bring the photo into a better prospective here

...bear with me a second please ...

this is going to take a pretty good effort to bring this around to what your husband might want.

You had mentioned that he had won a contest, I'm just guessing now because you mentioned that he had won the contest, I'm guessing that this is your husband right here.

...let me zoom in ...

he seems to be a one  proud person  right here... and I'm not really quite sure what the meaning is of him

...carrying the spoon...

I don't know if this is the award that he won but I find it quite interesting .

A lot of time can  be spent on this as you can see the little areas ... each little area has to be corrected

...I'll point out some areas here...

As you can see it really takes time to go through the image, but when we are finished with the restoration I'm sure you will be proud of what you have ventured into here.

You can see at the top we have a little bit of, scratching, maybe some pen marks here but I do want to come back to this door area because that shows a lot of damage and it will take time to bring this around to what we're looking for...

That's what we're looking at ...I'll get back to you on what it will cost on the image itself and kind of take it from there. I hope your husband enjoys the effort you're going through to have his happy smiling face... I think that's him, let me know... restored back to it's natural condition.

Black and White Photo Repair of Marx Brothers Photograph

 

Not long ago we received an unusual request from a client in California.

He had in his possession 2 photos of the Marx Brothers taken during one of their breaks while filming in California. We now know that the film "was clearly from "The Coconuts" filmed in New York". Thanks for the info..."landru141" on "Youtube".

Merging 2 Photos

We hope you enjoy this video of the Marx Brothers as we highlight merging an older, slightly faded, black and white photo...with another black and white photo... that has numerous scratches, areas of fading, folds and missing a large area in top left corner.

Hello and welcome to Atlanta Photo Restoration.

Not long ago we received an unusual request from a client in California.

He had in his possession 2 photos of the Marx Brothers taken during one of their breaks while filming in California.

Our client requested that both images be restored and merged into one nice, presentable photo of the brothers for his collection.

The photo you are now viewing is a much smaller, older black and white photo that has begun to lose it's luster and, as we say..."lost it's POP".

Now will view the second image.

As you can see... this photo is much larger..let me show you the first photo...

Also in this photo there is considerable damage.

I'm going to zoom in and examine the photo closer so you may obtain a better idea of some of the restoration and repair that will be needed to restore this photograph.

As you can see, the entire top left hand corner of the photo is missing.

There are numerous scratches, fading, folds and stains which we will now examine in this photo.

As you can see one of the larger folds along the top of the image, you can see where it has separated from the top, we have some discoloration up in this area right here... and as you move down into the table area you will see some of the fading taking place and when we move over to the left to see some stains that are here also. So these are some of the things we'll be looking at. ...moving photo around to see more.

Now that is second photo that we received.

Now what I'm going to do is merge the second and first photos together and give you an idea of the actual "to print" that we have finished for the restoration. I'm going to blend this in as you can see.

These types of photo deterioration are common in aged photos.

Thank you for your time and we greatly appreciate you visiting Atlanta Photo Restoration and if we can be of any help just give us a call...404-550-2330...

Interesting Finds in the Farm Family Photo Video

Excellent examples of very large creases, fading and large areas where the actual photo has been completely damaged exposing the photo paper will be examined during our review of this antique black and white picture of an early American farm family.

Many times during our video review examinations...when we zoom in on a picture...revealing details in the picture become more noticeable. During this video we will zoom in to expose a broach around one of the ladies neck and a very small neck pin around another. An excellent example might be the broach. Someone in the family might have that particular piece of jewelry in their possession but were unaware of who actually owned the family heirloom previously.

Hello and welcome to Atlanta photo restoration.

We hope you enjoy our review of a late 1800's, early 1900's farm family from western United States.

Let's begin by zooming in on the image and we'll move into the top left hand corner where the first thing that is the most obvious will be the picture itself is missing beside the tree on the right hand side.

Something else I'd like to bring to your attention, you will notice the white dots through-out the picture.

Those are where the picture is actually missing and you will see this along the ladies shoulder...right here.

Now as we move along to the bottom left-hand corner of the image you will pick up the other dots which are missing parts, and as we move to the right you'll start to pick up some scratches and you will see a long vertical scratch and at top you will notice where we have the two ladies by themselves.

If you will notice the shoulder pads on the ladies dresses...on many images that I've seen usually this is an indication that maybe some Austrian or German descent.

As we move through the photograph you'll notice that there is a very large smudge starting in the very top area moves down to the left and as we move down you'll also notice that this particular scratch carries all the way across the photograph from the right all the way across to the left hand side.

As we move closer to the bottom of the image you'll notice that the scratching and wearing of the photograph itself has greatly been deprecated and this will have to dealt with very carefully.

As you can see there is considerable damage in the middle of the photograph and all of this will take time and patience but in the end all will work out just fine.

Now lets zoom out of the image and fade to the completed restoration at this time...we hope you've enjoyed the review.

Thank you for your time and we greatly appreciate you visiting Atlanta Photo Restoration and if we can be of any help just give us a call...404-550-2330.

Black and White 1900's Photo Damage

Assembling the whole family together for the yearly photo is a real undertaking.

Getting them together in their "Sunday Best", in the early 1900's, on the family farm was probably next to impossible.

Now the true understanding of the value such a cherished family photograph represents becomes
even more apparent.

Scratches, Folds and Ink Pen Damage Photo Video

During the video we will explore the different types of photo damage that might require a small retouch..."small scratches and contrast adjustment here and there to restore faded sections"... or to fix damaged areas that need to be completely restored (large fold and photo seperation from photopaper).

One big request from the owner...remove the ink pen "X" mark on the uncles image and make a photo copy of his family reunion.
