Restoring Old Photographs

Family trees can be greatly enhanced when an image of the person is included.  So if you find an old, worn-out photo, arrange to have it restored and enlarged to suit your needs.  Future generations can enjoy the names and images and see if any family members have inherited the facial characteristics of their ancestors.

Restoring Old Photographs

Black and White Photography is timeless.

No matter what technological advances are made in the world of photography, a black and white portrait is timeless.

A Summer's Day

A sunny day at the beach with a cool summer breeze was the opportune time for a photo shoot.  The sound of the gentle waves rolling onto the sand gave a serene experience for the family and allowed to recapture the moment on camera.

Staff Members’ Head Shots…

Giving attention to grooming is an important part of this type of photo session.

For example, no one wants to see a lop-sided tie on a person’s professional business card!

“Having a great photo was essential”

An appreciative client made this comment after his daughter’s painting was one of 38 chosen out of 200 entries for a Fringe competition this year. 

They attempted to photograph the portrait themselves but were not happy with the result. A list-minute request to ask Face Photography to take the photograph was made and this brought much relief and satisfaction to the talented artist.

Congratulations Margie-we hope you will be awarded with The Emma Hack prize for your amazing depiction!

Personal Photography Requests…

Sometimes clients ask for a specific look to their photographs.  For example, an object can be highlighted white the rest of the photo is in black and white.

What time of the day is best for outdoor photography?

Face Photography receives this question frequently and contrary to popular belief, a bright, sunny part of the day is a nightmare for a photographer!  It’s always better to shoot in overcast, low-light parts of the day. After sunrise and just before sunset, depending on the season, is an ideal time to get some great photos.  We often find that the photos convey a certain mood during these times of the day.  Anytime is winter is perfect too as the lighting is generally soft.  If it’s necessary to photograph during peak sunlight, then it’s important to find a shady area such as under a tree.
