Restore It

Matthew Noel

I love the opportunity to fix old or broken things.  That opportunity presented itself when I notice a friend's blog photo of himself in the US Air Force that was taken years ago.  It was worse for the ware.  I downloaded the photo and quickly brought it into photoshop.  In Adobe camera RAW I dropped the exposure and warmed up the picture using the color temperature slider.  Once in photoshop I used Nik's define 2.0 noise reduction to smooth out the background.  Then I applied an S curve on an adjustment layer to increase contrast.  I finished up with some localized sharpening in the eyes, mouth, etc.  Below are the before and after photos.  You can visit his blog by clicking here.

I think the final result was good and helped tell his story.
