* Lecture Series
Digital Restoration and Retouching of Old Photographs


Monday December 8, 7-9pm
Admission: $15

Stephen has been working restoring old photographs for over 30
years. Originally working by hand with a lot of spot-tone, he's be
doing it digitally since the late 80s. His profile in Communication
Arts back in 1995 even highlighted one of his techniques. The
lecture will go through a number of restoration techniques, all
designed to repair damage but maintain the original's real content so
as not to make fiction out of precious pieces of personal history or
documentary work.

Just in time for the holiday season, these techniques may help you
repair that precious image to share with the family.

December 2003

Tree and Grass. Hawaii Volcanoes National Park

The road to the trailhead on Mauna Loa rises through major changes in the
landscape, from the lava flows of the coastline up though forests and
grasslands on the volcano's slopes. I remembered these trees from my first
visit to Hawaii in the early 1980s, and I was anxious to revisit the area. The textural
contrasts, blooming trees and warm colors lived up to my memory.

We're offering an 11x14 inch print, matted to 16x20 and ready to frame
for $195, framed for an additional $75. This print at this price is
offered through December 31. We'll be taking orders until then, and
shipping them out by January 15th.

About the Program

Each month we offer a signed, original print, at a special price.
This is a great opportunity to own a very affordable fine-art
photograph. Orders are taken for a 30-day period, then printed and
shipped within two weeks after the close. When it's over, it's over.
These prints won't be available again at this price.
