RESTORATION OF CIVIL WAR PHOTOGRAPH

Photographs dating back to the Civil War often exhibit fading, chemical deterioration and silver migration. Each of those images deserves careful consideration and preservation because of the historical significance that the are depicted on those photographs.

This striking photograph of three solders wearing cavalry uniforms required extensive restoration due to its uneven fading. Careful application of dodging and burning techniques and precise matching of tone and contrast helped to bring back the natural appearance of this Civil War cavalry group photo.
