New Beginnings

By |2017-07-30T20:39:33+01:00March 31st, 2017|Categories: News|Tags: , , , , |

Its been quiet, here in the website news section, over the last few months. Last year turned out to be a very sad and eventful one with the death of my Mother to cancer.  With her death comes the need to move on and make a new start. It’s time to make some changes.

In the next few weeks, i will be leaving north Yorkshire and moving to County Durham, to a location a stone’s throw from the Northumberland border. After 16 years of providing photography, websites and media in the North Yorkshire area, i will be winding down the commercial photography side of the business. The keen eyed amongst you may have noticed that several of the portfolio galleries have already been removed from the site covering the photography practice i no longer cover as a photographer.

Check the services page for updated details about what i now cover as a photographer.

Otherwise it is very much business as usual. The image repair, retouching and copying service will continue along with the other services mentioned on the website. The websites,blogs and social media streams will also continue to operate as before.

More news will be posted soon.

Questions about Copying

image-copying

A number of clients have recently asked some basic questions about copying, repairing or retouching a photograph, so i thought i would answer some of these queries here.

We start with what happens to the original image and the answer is that is it used to create a digital version and then its role is complete. It is placed in a flatbed scanner which then produces a digital version that can be edited, enhanced and then sent for printing. Scanning is quick and does not harm the image.

One aspect that is important is that the original image is never sent away. It isn’t dispatched to a photo lab or anywhere else. This means that if you use one of the digital services, you are dealing directly with the person doing the work  – me, Richard Flint. No shop assistants or nameless individuals. The original photograph remains safe.

Add to that the ‘while you wait’ aspect where a photograph, negative or slide can be copied and returned quickly without having to leave it anyway, it allows valuable images to be copied with no risk of loss. Ten minutes and i have what i need to work with and the original can be back in your hands. Simple.

Finally i often get asked what i types of things can be digitised or copied and the answer is pretty much everything from pencil drawings to old negatives. The only issue is the size of the original which is fine up to A4. Anything larger than that would need special scanning.
