Vintage Camera Inspiration and a FREEBIE

with 15 Comments

Vintage cameras have been considered trendy for some time now and are showing no signs of receding in popularity. I’m sure you’ve seen them around. They typically carry an early 1900s style and tend to be two-tone in color. They can come in the form of stickers, stamps, cards, overlays . . . basically anything you can imagine.


In case you have not ridden the vintage camera wave yet, here are some examples of things you can do with them and how creative people have used them on their pages. The camera used in all these examples is a stamp.


















We occasionally offer free downloads straight from our blog. This is a little vintage camera collection put together by Jen White from Joanne Brisebois’ Photographie kit. It includes a frame, overlay, and cluster all at 300 ppi in PNG format. Click on the orange button below to download the freebie.

    Thank you so much! I realize that you put these together, as they were not in the Photographie kit that I have. So, this is a real treat!

    Clever! i am a camera buff – first picked up a camera at age 7 and have never put it down. i carry one in my purse, and i still have my beloved 35mm with all its attachments, and a 35mm digi, pluse some antique cameras i’ve collected over the years. The first camera i personally owned was a Kodak Starflash that could also use slide film. i wore that baby out! i worked as a professional, studio photographer for years, as well. At age 70, my love affair with the camera has yet to wane! Thank you for these sweets!

    I remember well sitting for lengthy times to have a photo taken with similar-type cameras as a small child. Thanks for the cluster, etc., that is a true time saver for me.. I really loved the colors of the papers within this kit. I regret that I didn’t have the physical strength to use this kit as often as I would like. Hugs. 😉

    I’ve tried unsuccessfully to remember the first camera I had. I gotta say I love my Rebel now! Of course the iPhone does a pretty nice job, too.

    My grandfather was an avid photographer in the 1990’s – more than an amateur, less than a professional (never photographed for payment that I know of.) I still have many of his photos. Every time that I see a kit with a vintage camera in it, I think of him. Thank you for the freebie and the inspiration.
