RESTORATION OF A FADED VICTORIAN PHOTOGRAPH
Victorian era photograph of a young girl with her favorite doll was restored from a damaged, low contrast glass negative.
As the first step, the glass transparency was scanned on a professional quality flat bed photo scanner to capture all the details of the photograph. The captured high-resolution digital image was carefully retouched to remove all the scratched and imperfections and to fill in the damaged areas along the image borders.
The tonal range was adjusted to bring out the details that previously looked washed out or hidden in the shadows.
After the restoration process was completed the digital image was printed on fine art photo paper to preserve the richness of tones and the delicate details of this beautiful photograph from the bygone era.
