Here are a couple of examples of photographs we altered recently to make special photographs even more special.
The photo below was taken in a ski resort but with a fence as a background, I added the ski resort.
Below are the two original photographs, with favourite photos both with portaloos in the background!
So I took the best portrait of each person and put them together on a background of the favourite walk they used to take together.
A lovely reminder of good times.
I was asked to to combine three very low quality photographs so that there was a single photograph of the father with his two sons all around the same age.
I had to increase all the file sizes, restore the photographs, remove backgrounds and the lanyard, match the scale of each person, add Dad’s shoulders, find a different background and then put the composite image together to create the final result. Here’s the before and after.
My customers Bart and his wife Ania contacted me with a project to make a montage of photographs taken during Ania’s pregnancy.
Here are the original photographs and the final result after having matched tone, scale and lighting of each original print, then removed all the colour except the baby’s shoes!
“We had been taking pictures of Ania each month of her pregnancy to see how much she would be changing. Each picture was taken in the same pose, wearing the same clothes and at the same place. Somewhere in between we had moved houses and the background had changed. We made a decision that all ten pictures should be composed in one panoramic view with a neutral background. Richard from Photographs Forever gave us professional advise and was in contact through each step of the process. We decided to print it in black and white with spot colour accentuating the baby shoes, which had been given to me as a present by my wife right after she found out that we were having our long awaited baby!”
Increasingly popular is the idea of having a collection of framed photographs in an area of the house. Here’s a staircase collection
