Vintage Feelings - Post your vintage shots

Ive done a search but I cant seem to find a thread which consists only of vintage/retro photos. Post yours, whether these were taken with an old camera/lens to give that effect or done in post processing to create that retro look a lot of us seem to love.

Here are a couple to start this thread off, all done in PP

Here's a couple taken for Single in... challenges. The first was given a sepia treatment and also blurred in PP to give a look from the early days of photography. The second I desaturated and did a hue shift to try for an early color film look.

I enjoy both vintage camera photography and faux vintage in the photoshop

Some of the latter here:

If it's not a trade secret, would you mind sharing how you get such convincing elements in you "vintage" shots? When I want a vintage look, I have to shoot film and let the cat play with the negative before I scan it (results vary). I find the burned area in the second shot and the hair in the third very convincing.

For my picture of the 'lizard type thing' I used Lightroom with a few simple tweaks and then Nik Collection's Silver Efex Pro (one of the vintage presents). That said, I prefer the results of Nesster :-)

Thank you... I did some tutorials way back, essentially these are layers of dust / film / scratch / viewfinder etc over the original image, and various blends etc.

Basically, it is learning to use photoshop tools for evil rather than good

Looks nicely ancient

Another way to get that vintage look is to use a vintage camera with a cloudy lens, maybe one that puts scratches on the emulsion, and maybe has some interesting optical qualities.

This is with a Franka folder one of my daughters bought ages ago, and the other daughter found, and made me figure out how to use, which started me on this disease. The lens is crappy, it had a light leak or three, plus I didn't use tape over the ruby window



A couple from a 1938 Certo Dolly Super Sport. Ilford XP2




not that all vintage cameras produce such dreamy results, some are quite good.
This is with a 1913 No. 2 Pocket Brownie, a photo walk for her 100th birthday



this last one is with my oldest lens, ~1898 Taylor Taylor Hobson Cooke in an old Graflex 2x3 SLR.

Nesster,
Thanks for links. As usual, it's all obvious -- once some one else figures it out and explains it to me.
