Recreating a Moment with Tim Burton

A couple of weeks ago I was contacted by a NYC man who wanted to see if I could fix the photo below because his camera wasn’t focusing properly and was giving him really blurry photos.

Guest Post: Your Camera Called – It Wants a Photographer Upgrade – by Kevin Halliburton
