My first attempt at photorestoration.... (please be gentle)
This is a part of a photoshoot for a soloproject about 12 years ago.
The original negatives were bad, and the photo's were very bad,
with very annoying shadows and a dull background.

I decided to take this shot and look what I could do with photoshop,
I did try some things before but this is my first real attempt to make something to last.

I started by cutting myself out, removing all shadows and defects of the negative
Pumped up the brightness/contrast & saturation.

After that I did a new background and added the new shadows
As a nice detail I added the flames to the guitar, and finally the border.

Flames, shadows and border were filter work (Dream suite).

Please let me know what you think, please remember I'm a absolute beginner.
