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?
