Restoration is just as it sounds. Restoring a photograph to a luster and quality equal to or better than the original. Most often these are small, (often only 1.5″ x 3″) old Black & White photos that are faded, stained, creased and/or torn. They can be restored to a true gray-scale (black&white), to a sepia tone (brownish orange) or colour corrected.
Retouching includes the removal of foreground and background objects and/or people from the photo. It also includes things like enhancements to the subject such as teeth whitening, blemish removal, skin tone correction, the softening of wrinkles, etc.
Manipulation of a photograph can mean many things. Superimposing two or more photos (composite), the creation of a collage, or adding something to the photo that was not there. There are as many variations and styles as the imagination will allow.
Everything here will be referred to as “Restoration”

Note: In all cases you are supplying photos that are to be changed in some way by one or more of these services. You will be required to sign a contract outlining the services required, the product requested, the estimated cost to you, terms of payment, estimated time frame and a statement of ownership as to the photographs being altered.
I will stay within your budget and time frame to the best of my abilities. Even with a small project this contract is very important if for no other reason than the “statement of ownership.”
