Besides retouching and restoration of photos, I also off Photo Effects. There are an infinite number of effects that can be done but I have included a few examples to inspire you. We can discuss what you have in mind or I can make suggestions if you want some guidance.
This is the original I am using for the exam
ples. All photos start somewhere so I will make them look their best before I use any effects so that the effects look even better.
This is a straight forward black and white conversion with a little Selenium toning. When I used to have my own darkroom, this was one of my favorite processes for black and white. It gave it a richer tone and appearance.
This process converts a photo into a simulated charcoal drawing. There are many options such as color, pencil, pastel, and more. It’s all up to your imagination. I am always here to help with suggestions. The larger photos have more detail.
Want your photo to have brush strokes or maybe something even more impressionistic? I can do that also. This example keeps much of the detail but adds a printing type feel to it. Your very own fine art masterpiece!
