Vintage Vignettes

I love the hobby of digital photograph, taking as many pictures as I want, choosing my favourites, tweaking them a bit using PicMonkey, sharing and having a visual record for myself. Low cost hobby (after the camera cost).



Favourite find Sunday was a red birdhouse. Washboard was another fortunate weekend find. Vintage jug is from my Mom's collection that joined my home last week. Boxwood from this project.



Cutting board, small stoneware bowl, reamer, graters and rolling pin, kitchenware.

Judy of 20 North Ora, a lovely blogging friend, posts her vintage finds each week and I admire the way she presents and showcases her treasures.


Tried out lemons and grapes on a footed glass cake plate over a vintage table cover.

I am developing a yen for a 60 mm lens. MMS has been posting very clear demonstrations on how she sets up a photoshoot, layering her collectibles. She also shows the wider picture surroundings just to keep things 'real'.

Donna of Funky Junk Interiors often blogs about trying out things outside ones comfort zone and shares photo techniques.

Today I found another great idea for backdrops by Jamie at Anderson and Grant.

All photos were inside/daylight/kitchen lights on, 50 mm lens, F5.6, ISO 6400, manual focus, using a tripod. Still learning.


Thanks for visiting.

  3. Wow! These turned out GREAT for ISO 6400! If I go even to ISO 1800, the grain in my photos are unbearable. Do you have a Mark III? And you did a beautiful styling job!

  12. It is fun trying our new ways of taking pictures.
    Your vintage vignettes are all great!
    I would love to find an old washboard like yours - I remember my mother using one - now that's showing my age!!

  14. You do always have such lovely vignettes. Although I've been buying/selling antiques for almost 10 years, I still struggle with pretty vignettes sometimes! Thanks for sharing @ TTF! :)

  19. Now that you say that, "I like the way she presented her treasures" ......that made me realise I do not do that. I will try to do that next time. Thanks for the idea.

  20. Super cute vignettes! I agree, photography has become a more do-able hobby for me too, now that I can take ten photo's to get one good one, rather than just one... Ha! Love the lemons with it... :)
