Welcome Our Latest Advertiser: The Photo Junkie Project!
â€œGetting the pictures you meant to takeâ€ is the slogan for the latest advertiser to The B-Town Blog – The Photo Junkie Project. Self-proclaimed photo junkie and local mom, Heather Mathias, created The Photo Junkie Project, an online photo retouch service.
Heather is a photographic artist with over 10 years experience in graphic design, digital photo manipulation, and traditional photography, including photo exhibition and darkroom/photo lab work. Not only does Heather love pictures, she also loves to help people.
After becoming a mom, Heather thanked her lucky stars she knew Photoshop. She could turn that â€œperfectâ€ picture into a â€œmasterpieceâ€ by eliminating the toy-ridden living room in the background. She could brighten up the â€œcutest picture everâ€, that was unfortunately taken on the day the camera flash decided not to work. She could even be creative in the way she sent pictures to family. For example, one Christmas, everyone in Heatherâ€™s family received a refrigerator magnet depicting her one-year old as a DJ grooving on a toy music station.
Heatherâ€™s love of photography has allowed her to turn her archive of pictures into fun projects for family, friendsâ€¦and herself. â€œIt has become an obsession that only grandparents can truly appreciate,â€ jokes Heather. But in all seriousness, Heather feels her photo projects have been the best way, and the most fun way, to keep her family that lives in the Mid-West involved in her daughterâ€™s life here in Burien.
Now Heather would like to help other people with their photo projects. Whatever the subject may beâ€¦family pictures, vacation shots, random snapshots of interesting and unique things, eBay/Craigslist itemsâ€¦and whatever the project may be, Heather would like to help you get the pictures you meant to take.
Heatherâ€™s online retouch service, The Photo Junkie Project, offers a range of services from simple touch-ups to complex manipulations. Pictures can be cropped, color corrected, and brightened or darkened. Items can even be added or subtracted from a picture; and entire photographs can be manipulated.
The Photo Junkie Project also offers a resize service, which can open the window to different ways of displaying your favorite pictures; for instance, in a locket, a wallet sleeve, or a circular photo frame – or transformed into a refrigerator magnet!
Prices are well below professional photo lab standards, which can be upwards of $75/hour; but the quality is not.
Heather is constantly developing ways to help other people with their photo projects. So if there is a service you are interested in, but you do not see it listed on the website, just email in a request. The Photo Junkie Project is here to help.
