Smile Just an introduction :)

I thought before I start a rampant posting spree, I should introduce myself.

Hello, I'm Roxanne - While I'm not a newbie to the subjects covered by this board, I am always on the look out for new tips or even ideas in general.

Among the many hats I wear I am a photographer (both traditional and digital), digital artist, and I occasionally dabble in restoration.

I've attached a recent restoration, of a family photo, I did. Just to give an example of my work. With this photo, I did not want to completely restore the image to a "new" state. I feel that vintage photographs hold their own character and I'd like to keep that to a certain degree. What was an issue with me, was the fact that the face had completely lost depth. While I am familiar with lighting/styles of photography from the period, I knew that the face was not always a "blob".

Always the perfectionist. I may still do a bit of tweaking, but this is pretty much the final result. It's amazing how the face now looks thinner, once I added a bit of depth.

Thanks and nice to meet you
