About Rocky Springs Vintage Page

So excited to have passed the four year mark and am eagerly into the fifth year. How the vintage process happens. The barn releases the item to me. I inspect the vintage piece, dust the item, look for blemishes and scratches. I then look to the web for information on pricing and historical background. I come to an agreement on what to charge after seeing what others charge. My price is generally in the middle. I look for an appropriate shooting place with a white background if at all possible. I design the set. I shoot. I re-shoot. Then it is off to PicMonkey where I edit and re-size the photo. I think about the background story. Who did the piece belong to? Where did I find it? Can I recall a story about the owner that will move a younger person to buy the item?
