Styles 101: What is Retro Photography?
Retro photography creates a distinctive aesthetic, by imitating styling from the past. These are not antique photos but photography that is consciously derivative of trends, fashions, attitudes, and technology from previous decades.
Nostalgia plays a large role in this genre, where props and wardrobe dictate a moment in history. The treatment of the photo itself may play a role in retro styling through the use of film grain, chromatic coloring, digital filters, framing, and even the decision to shoot on celluloid film.
