I received orders for additional photos to restore. This is one area where most photographers don’t venture because it is a lot more than just clicking the shutter. Restoration takes advantage of my painting skills.
This client left a 2″ stack of photos. Most of them will simply be digital copies of the photos. The ones that he really has an emotional attachment to he wants hand colored. So, I’ve got my work cut out for me.
One of my rentals needs a couple of screens replaced. I tried to find metal grids instead of woven screens. You’d think that would be something you would find at any hardware store. Screen material is ridiculous. It is fragile and has been around longer than I have.
There’s a market for non-woven, sheet metal grids to replace woven screen material.
I went online and found some. Unfortunately, it only comes in black. I could probably paint it, but I’d worry about the holes filling in.
Woven screen it is going to be.
Then there are the screen frames. Those stupid plastic splines that have to be pressed in are a pain to deal with too. Consumers arise and revolt against cheap aluminum screen frames and woven screen material.
