Copy & Restoration


Lower Photography & Studio also does restoration of all flat or 3D to 2D art and we never use your original image to do so. We make a copy of your work and work from that. There are some exceptions to this "rule of Thumb". What is restoration? It is doing work on a piece of art, your image, to improve it from the original? We guarantee that!


We will even take images you have taken and do the finishing work on them for you. I know you know how much things are changing all of the time. All we have to do is look at the History channel and see how far we have gotten. In 1903 the first Ford ran off the production line. That is also true recently as I am always looking for ways to make things better for our clients. One of the things that caught my eye and my pocketbook is AI (Artificial Intelligence) when it comes to what we do and/or how we do it.


 In my field of endeavor the words “Artificial Intelligence” has just jumped onto the artistic scene. We have always done copy and restoration. Restoration is done by most on the present image to be restored, but we have always done restoration on a copy of the original. We still don't touch the orginal.


I ran some tests using AI and was able to take an image created by one of my clients as a 5x7 print on their cell phone camera and make it 180 inches long without loss of sharpness or quality in anyway. The original is not being copied but left alone. Yes we do restored, retouch and finished image.


A few of the thousands of images we do each year some shown in the show above. There is a variety of images, old images that have been restored, newer images that had a color cast on them that our client wanted removed, many images out of albums where the client wanted many copies of each image after defects on them were fixed by us, etc.. Oh yes, just bring your images to us and we will give you a firm estimate before we start any work for you. The images below are very small thus you can not see what we started with until you come into the studio where we can show you the before and after.



Important Note:

Most restoration work has very sentimental value. Please note that we DO NOT send anything out of the Lower Photography studio to protect your image(s) from being lost. Serveral of our clients have told us when they have done so and their images had been lost and were not recoverable.
