My previous post was a quick image of a Paterson contact printer made of Bakelite used for printing large negatives, which leads me nicely to this post. I restored two very large negatives recently. They were a non standard size of 6.5 inches by 4.5 inches image below
When i held them up to the light the subject matter seemed to show buildings, hidden underneath all the damage.
Once scanned with a large format negative attachment on my scanner, i put it through a few processes to eliminate the colour casts and reduce the damage as much as possible, which revealed the image.
The followed a few hours of very patient wrinkle removal using a combination of tools, patch, heal, clone and spot heal with content aware selected. The sky was filtered to leave the original toning and grain match was applied.
The other one turned out great too!
