Giving Back is the Greatest Reward

The majority of my design work has been done as a volunteer. Since retiring four years ago, I get the most pleasure from donating my skills to local organizations, like the Palisades Virtuosi, where I also sit on the Board of Directors. You've already seen a sample of my poster work in an earlier blog post in 2016. For the second year, I have been doing design work for The Teaneck International Film Festival, which will be taking place this weekend in Teaneck, N.J. Below is the updated schedule which I spent many hours designing and updating, as well as the ads which were placed in local newspapers. Oh, the updating. If you live in the NY-NJ-PA area, please join us this weekend. Sunday's 2 pm movie at Temple Emeth will be featuring a talkback with Academy Award Actress and Director Jodie Foster!

A Theatre Group Gets a Redesign

I'm proud of the work I just finished for the Little Fig Stage.  When you click on the name, you will notice that this minimalist site opens with a slide show on the home page. The owner said she liked the color purple, and on her previous site had used a special font for the name of the group.

I matched the font and paired the purple with black to create a classy, easy to navigate site.

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!


Do you like these results? Would you like to make your photos more amazing? Drop us an email and see how much we charged this customer. You will be pleasantly surprised.
