It Friday again and another Time-Lapse video for you. I am really enjoying this way of showing off my work. The time-lapse format really does show just how much work goes into restoring a photo. This one is an old damaged photo that was hand painted originally.
The Restoration & Colourizing
The restoration was quite straightforward. There was lots of surface damage that was cleaned up and lots of spotting to be removed. The quality of the photo wasn't the greatest so I had the smooth out the really small spots and add some noise to hide the rest. Colourizing this particular photo was a challenge because of the high detail levels in the background and the patterns on the clothing. So I decided to use some selections to accurately target highlights and shadows in these areas. This made filling in these areas much easier.
