Why scan RGB?

By |January 5th, 2012|

I use this image in my Photo Restoration courses.  It is badly stained and on first glance, looks like it would take hours to restore.  And had I scanned it as a greyscale image it probably would.

But I never scan photographic images in greyscale.  I’m a big fan of RGB (red, green blue).  Let me […]

Ah, I can only dream. Can ‘flat-lay’ photography really be this easy?

By |January 3rd, 2012|

The answer is yes but sadly I don’t need to ask to know that one of these babies would be beyond my budget.

Among the many tasks I perform at Pixel By Pixel is flat lay product photography. You know?  those images of clothing you see in catalogues and in online stores?  Designers, manufacturers and online […]

Amby Baby Hammocks website images

By |January 2nd, 2012|

A few months ago, Trish from Amby Baby Hammocks contacted me requesting images for the front page of her new website. She had already had the product images taken for her shopping cart but wanted inviting, fresh, bright images for the front page. This is after all the first impression that visitors to her […]

In Need Of a Little TLC

By |January 1st, 2012|

I come across quite a few images like this one; quite obviously treasured by the owner but in need of a little TLC. Restoration wasn't particularly difficult in this case but it was time consuming.

Reconstructing the Past

By |November 7th, 2011|

The way we restore photographs today is quite different to the way images were restored before computers, but the concept remains the same.  Some restorations are purely objective;  the image has obvious damage with an obvious restoration solution.  Spots, tears and scratches are repaired, mould and stains removed and sometimes, the ‘jigsaw’ is pieced back […]

  • Photoshop books I love

Photo Restoration and Retouching Books I LOVE!

By |October 28th, 2011|

Apart form one short  course back in 2000, I am completely self taught when it comes to Photoshop. I learnt from necessity when I was teaching in high schools, staying just one step ahead of my tech savvy students. It wasn’t until I started my business and in particular restoring photographs that I realised how […]

  • Digital Photography: It's Child's play

Digital Photography: It’s Child’s play

By |October 26th, 2011|

Yes, Literally!  Child’s play.

I needed a few texture images  yesterday for an editing project so grabbed my camera and ran outside to take a few shots   My four year old daughter followed with the Dora The Explorer camera she received for Christmas last year.  This particular camera won’t win any prizes for it’s picture […]

Matthew and Lisa’s Wedding

By |October 13th, 2011|

There are some amazing wedding photographers out there.  I am not one of them. 😕

Early in my career I worked as a portrait photographer and whilst I still shoot some portraits, I find myself mostly in front of the computer screen editing images for other photographers or photographing products.  But when my niece rang and asked for a […]

A touch of colour to brighten your day

By |October 12th, 2011|

I don’t remember when I first fell in love with photography but I do know it was at a very early age.

There are a few photos that I remember fondly from my childhood.  One of them is my parents’ wedding photograph which originally hung on the lounge room wall of the family home but was […]

The Book Of Giving

Last year I was very fortunate to be involved in a very small way, with the creation of this amazing book of inspirational quotes, “The Book Of Giving”.

This little pink book of quotes about life, love, family and friendship was created by entrepreneur, Gabby Cox with a little help from a network of family, friends […]

Just Bebelicious!

By |April 28th, 2011|

Wow!  Did I have fun with these images.  The lovley Jen from Bebelicious has recently launched her New Zealand web site with an Australian site soon to follow.  Here you will find a great range of vintage inspired moses baskets.

Jen’s brief did include the deep etched product shots that you would expect to see on […]

Li’l Miss Chelsea

By |January 25th, 2011|

I was looking forward  to Christmas just past.  A chance to travel ‘home’ to the farm in beautiful Nowendoc, NSW where I grew up; to breathe the fresh mountain air, to see my family,  and to meet the newest member of our family,  Li’l Miss Chelsea.

I just couldn’t resist the chance to photograph this very […]
