are at least 2 ways that digital manipulation can really enhance
a photograph. The first is the creation of a collage, or changing
the original image / images into something different entirely;
and the second is by enhancing or restoring an image and presenting
it in the best possible way.
A digital collage can be a great addition to an album, or to
put on the wall. Creating a digital collage involves a four
step process which begins once a visual concept has been established.
We can collaborate with you in developing ideas, or we can work
directly from our own concept.
imagery for the collage is the first step. This imagery may
include photographs, vows, the invitation or any material you
provide, as well as any other elements we feel are appropriate.
Preparing the collected images so they may be imported into
a Photoshop document is the second step. Thirdly, we'll determine
the key visual elements, and we'll compose those elements, into
a form which best conveys the visual concept.
this point we'll provide you with a low resolution digital sketch
of the illustration. Generally well send this to you as
an e-mail attachment unless an alternate format is requested.
Once the sketch is approved, the fourth step takes place, which
is the creation of the final high resolution illustration. We
have the most up to date equipment, and so the final image will
be as close as possible to photo quality. The final cost will
depend on the exact nature of the project, but you can look
at $50 as a starting point.
ENHANCEMENT AND RESTORATION
Faded colors, cracked edges, spots, and rips are all signs of
photo age. We can restore your photos to their original
condition, all without harming the actual photograph. Through
the restoration and enhancement process, backgrounds can be
altered, spots and cracks removed, glass glare removed, sharpness
added and subjects can be combined or separated. A basic head
touch-up is only $7.95/head (on top of our custom print charge),
and more detailed work is $1/minute. We can also manipulate
the image with hand-coloring or adding a tone to the final print.
After all, you chose us as your photographer because you wanted
exceptional photography... now let's make some exceptional prints!
