Tintypes: Restored Photos Printed on Metal


From 1860-1879, tintypes were used in photographic printing. An image was printed on a thin sheet of metal, and covered with a dark lacquer. Several years ago, a client asked me to restore about 25 tintypes. It was the first time I had actually seen them in person, and was excited to work with them. I have uploaded some of the finished works below. Do you have any photos which need to be restored? Memories like this should be remembered.

Vacation Photos Look Flat? Let Us Make Them Amazing!

So many people are using the cameras in their phones, and the quality has greatly improved over the years. BUT, that said, when the camera picks the ISO, shutter speed and aperture, the results are not always what one would like to see. Let's look at few examples of photos taken with an iPhone 6s. The after photos show what we can do at J. Greller to bring out the beauty of the original.

 

Notice that the ledge in the original was removed and the photo on the right looks more brilliant.



















What a difference!



Dark shadow in the bottom right corner needed to be removed,
and the lovely architecture should've popped!



















WOW.

Creating a Composite: One Plus One Equals One!





When a client comes in with an unusual request, it's always exciting. A couple wanted a photo of their son in the coliseum. They had a photo of him dressed up on Halloween, and a photo of the coliseum. Creating a composite takes time, and the results are awesome.
