Not only was this photo full of spots and scratches, but I had to recreate the bottom, right quadrant of the chair.
The original for each of these pictures were badly damaged, as you can see. I needed to recreate most of the hair, which is quite a challenge. Hair has so many different colors, shadows, and contrast. I'm also working on skin. The trick is to make it NOT look perfect.
This is a picture from my freshman year, spring on 1980. I could restore the color, but I couldn't make any of my old friends 40 years younger.
Here are more samples of pictures that have been restored.
