Here's an old photo of my dad circa the 50's. Still needs something, but I cleaned it up this far.

Good restoration.

I might run a noise reduction.....it'll reduce the grain. Increase contrast a little. I think it looks pretty good.

And perhaps change the background color so his skin tones don't fade into the background as much. Just my opinion of course. Otherwise I think you did a good job.

I never even considered doing that. Thanks for the suggestion.

Thanks, I appreciate that. The one guy borrowed 8 grand for 'prop' money for the shoot.

My neighbor told me his grandmother only had one picture of herself that had been taken when she was a young woman, and it was cracked and scratched up. It had been molded onto a 1" diameter pin-back button (like the "I Like Ike" campaign buttons). He asked if I could restore it for her. I promised that I'd do my best. Here is what I managed to do with that tiny picture. After restoring it, I enlarged and printed before and after pictures for her, in a larger format than that tiny button. It's a shame she wasn't smiling - she still has a nice smile.

To start, I copied it by taking a bunch of pictures of it with my camera - a Nikon Coolpix E8800 (which isn't listed on the equipment lists on POTN, so I just randomly selected a Coolpix camera and listed exposure settings so I could post it in my gallery).

Exposure info.... Nikon Coolpix E8800 camera - 18mm - 1/38.6 Seconds - f:4.2 - ISO 50

Very nice work. Did you think about lightening the dark circles around her eyes and the dark areas around the corners of her mouth?

Thanks. I didn't want to alter it - just restore it to as nearly original as I could.

On January 27th, it was the 50th anniversary of the fire on Launch Pad 34 where Apollo 1 astronauts Grissom, White and Chaffee were killed in their capsule during a mission rehearsal. I had the honor of developing a photo / graphic for the back of the program that was printed for the memorial event.

I went out at dusk and took some pictures of the Pad 34 as it is today, and then superimposed a layered image of each of the astronauts as they had posed for publicity photos just a couple of weeks before the ill fated rehearsal.

Nice image. Is there a way to fade the bottom of the astronaut's photos a little smoother so there is not so obvious of a "selection line"?

Probably a good idea. Didn't have a lot of time though. I will remember your thoughts next time I have a similar project.
