Faded sepia appearance.
Old B&W photographs tend fade and turn a sepia tone, caused by chemical residue that was left in the print material at the time it was processed. Additionally, there is often emulsion damage in the form of cracks, tears and staining, all of which we can rectify. At Perth Photo Restorations, we can bring your images back to B&W or give them a cleaner sepia finish.
Fading colours and colour shift.
Colour images suffer the same fate, however these can be more challenging due to the uneven fading of the colour layers. The longer you leave these, the more complex and expensive the restoration becomes. In order to restore colour photos, there must be enough of each layer left to work with.
Sometimes, your photo's don't look the way you expect them to, so we offer an image manipulatiuon service which makes it possible to change the background or delete an unwanted person or portion of the image.
Rod has been involved in the photographic industry for over thirty years and developed his restoration skills in the early eighties. As this was well before the technology we take for granted these days, the process involved making a negative, using a colour chart to enable the printer to produce an accurate print, followed by a print the same size as the original after which the repair work was carried out using pencils and a special spray to provide bite for the colour pencils. In order to restore an old photograph to reflect the original image’s qualities, it is necessary to understand the way silver halide based material work and how they react to being scanned or photographed, as well as how the restored image transfers to the new digital technologies.
