Paul, a Peterborough based photographer, produces traditional, art photography and photo restoration. His speciality is photo restoration. He has become known for his Edwardian actress work. A number of restorations for private clients have been commissioned and completed to their delight . The restoration process can be either a straight forward tidy up of small marks or corrections. For instance from, say sepia toning back to black and white or vice versa. A tidy up or tinting, removing backgrounds, people, and adding new images of people or new backgrounds.
Art photography is a relatively new direction for Paul. As he completes each image, his enthusiasm for probing further in this direction increases. Many people may think that photography is a poor relation to ‘proper’ art but Paul states, ‘many hours can be spent setting up a photo, and there can be no certainty of a successful outcome, there are many failures’, but Paul says there is a great feeling of satisfaction when an idea come to fruition..
Paul says that working with glass is especially difficult. However much it is cleaned before the image is taken it seems to attract any passing dust. Working with glass and backgrounds with straight lines can also be a challenge. You will see the finished article in his exhibition but what you won’t see are the hours spent getting everything as perfect as possible. Paul’s restoration experience comes in very useful during the post processing of the image.
During the PAOS period Paul will be happy to assess photographs for restoration together with demonstrations of basic photo restoration techniques. These assessments and demonstrations will be free of charge. These services will be available on the weekend dates. Please feel free to ask for an assessment or demonstration. There will be examples of ‘before’ and ‘after’ photographs.
Paul also has work displayed on www.redbubble.com//;youpic.com/https://
