Enhancing old negative scan – Chaka Khan in concert

For more than a decade now, I’ve been an eager concert photog. My very first taste of concert photography, however, was way back in 1993 when I visited the North Sea Jazz Festival armed with a Nikon F-801s. I’ve scanned a few of the negatives from that festival and this is a sample of the power of Topaz Photo AI (face recovery, sharpen, denoise) combined with Adobe Photoshop (generative fill, spot healing, colour balance). It’s still not a “perfect” photo, but I’m amazed at how much it’s improved from the starting point…!
