Chris’ Great Grandad













One of my clients, Chris, gave me this old photograph of his Great-Grandad on duty with a now unknown Soldier.  He wanted me to scan it into the computer for him so that he could have a digital copy of this treasured keepsake.

I took the opportunity to clean-up the image and put Great-Grandad in a nicer setting, losing GGD’s unknown colleague in the process.

As DDG’s boots in the original photograph are partly covered by blades of grass, it was not possible to stand him on a plain surface.  My task was to find a suitable background image with grass that matched the original.  I then had to “age” the new background so that it matched the image quality of GGD…

Chris was delighted with the result, and agreed to let me share it with you here…
