This week we cover the guide to vintage mobile photography editing for the Business Directory. We explore the various ways you can create your own vintage aesthetic using smartphones.
The first tip to achieving the faded vintage look is by reducing the contrast of your photos or by simply reducing the image saturation. Apply some contrast or some red tint to make it pop a little. Add “fade” to your image which is an option in all photo editing apps. Fade will bring out some of the details in the foreground, and thereby make the images a bit flatter. Consider adding some blur to your photos and they will immediately look less perfect, which gives that vintage appearance.
Another way to achieve this when shooting is by focusing on something other than the intended subject and play with the blur. Incorporate vintage objects in your shots such as rotary phones, compasses, or old cameras will also establish the vintage feel.
