Vintage Sepia Photography – Featured Art Prints

I like playing with the sepia look in photography. It conjures up images of old vintage photographs. My wife and I had our picture taken in an old west jail years ago…they decked us up in clothes from the time period. It was done in the sepia format giving it that old look. That experience started my interest in the sepia look.

In my years of photography, I have turned a number of shots into a sepia format (example my Chichen Itza post from last year). I typically feature old items such as the old cash register and chair from another post. Today I wanted to feature three such pictures from my photo shoot in the Sharlot Hall Museum located in Prescott, Arizona.

The first capture is a desk and chair located in one of the log cabins. I like the two architectural elements together and felt that putting a sepia vintage look to them would fit the time period they represent.

The second print is of that same log cabin from the exterior.

The final capture is a pot belly stove located in one of the log cabins on the property.

    These are wonderful, Kirt. The effect is perfect for the subjects. There’s something relaxing about them. Maybe it’s just the much less complicated times they evoke.
    Sharing.
    Happy weekend hugs!

    Kirt I agree the sepia really brings out that vintage or historical feel to the images. I also am struck by the wonderful lighting in all three of the photos. Really brings depth to the images. Brilliant.

      Thank you very much Sue…I truly appreciate your feedback and kind words. Seeing these items in log cabins or log buildings as they were back then really brings home how rugged the living conditions were compared to today. Then on top of that comparing the living conditions represented by these shots compared to what the living conditions are in the floating villages per your last post makes this look like luxury. Everything is relative and makes me humble with the life I have been blessed with! Thanks for stopping by!!

        It is all relative isn’t it? Your post and mine spur on gratitude for how much we have and that is a good thing. Always a pleasure to visit!
