Portrait Finishes

CANVAS:  The beauty of a painting with the detail of a photograph.  the same quality as a custom portrait which is bonded to an artist's canvas and mounted on a stretcher frame.

CUSTOM:  Each print is hand printed to your specifications, custom cropped, and protected with a lacquer spray, 10 x 10 and/or larger portraits are mounted to an art board.  retouching will include removing blemishes and softening of harsh facial lines (correction of hair and clothing are not included).  All black and white prints are custom.


MACHINE:  A beautiful portrait without the expense of hand finishing.  All prints are cropped.  5 x 7 and/or larger portraits are sprayed with a protective lacquer.  10 x 10 and/or larger portraits are mounted on art board unless otherwise indicated.

RETROUCHING

About Retouching – Photographs usually do not depict people the way our eyes see them. Facial lines and blemishes are exaggerated. Minor wardrobe and set defects appear more pronounced and are more distracting. Because the camera transforms a 3-D person into a 2 dimensional image, the subject may appear slightly disproportionate and possibly heavier than he or she truly is. Retouching allows us to present people in a much more realistic fashion.

STANDARD RETOUCHING applies to original image only – includes:
·removing blemishes
·softening facial lines
·removing stray hairs
·removing facial shine
·adjusting jaw lines
