This assignment was to put all of the siblings in a family together, using the 2 supplied photos pictured here. We were not to include the child in the photos, and were asked to use a different background, preferably a “studio portrait type” of backdrop. After scanning and cleaning up the images, the exposure of both were matched, and separated from their existing backgrounds. They were then placed onto a studio-type backdrop. The bottom image is the result.

This assignment involved using the preferred family portrait - the first shot, with smiles and favored background – but replacing two of the dog’s heads, so that you could see their faces. We were provided with another photo of the dogs facing forward, which Deb added to the original photo. We then had the photo printed onto canvas, and framed in a ready-made 18x24 genuine Mahogany frame.

Several ways to restore a discolored photo. Great ski jump, too!

We just finished a large job for a presentation given by the Lucille Packard Children’s Hospital at Stanford, for their largest contributors. We had to frame shadowbox panorama-sized 3D pleated artworks as you see in the images. On one side, you see the architectural drawing of the new wing, and on the other, a full-color version. Added to the job is a cut-out for the dedication/plaque, and strips of matboard on the sides of the frame. We used mahogany mouldings, and Museum UV filter glass.
