Usually vintage shots have that black frame around it and an iridescent soft light to it. Try putting some sort of frame around your lens to have that border. To get a soft light, shoot the pics when the sun is setting. Make sure the sun is behind the person and then try to get rays of it shining in from a corner. The sunlight to should cover the whole entire person is that glow.

Do you have any sunglasses with warm-tinted lenses that you don’t use? What I’ve done is that I used a brown tinted lense and put them over my camera lenses to give that vintage feeling without photo editing.

Also. most camera these days tends to have filters in them— like B&W, and Sepia.

If you don’t have photoshop, colored lenses and a hood cap to vignette will be your best bet. I know there are many programs online though that will help you with color curves to get that vintage look to the photos. Do you have a Mac? If you do, when you upload your photos to iPhoto, click on the edit button and then filters. It will bring up different tones like B&W, sepia, and you can boost or lighten the color to get the shade you want. You can also add soft focus to blur the edges too.

Since you don’t have photoshop, a good online free editor that will give you most of the options as Photoshop is Pixlr Photo Editor

Just a head up.

Use filters with your camera, or edit the settings in your SLR. :)

Also try getting into film, it can produce a realistic vintage output if you use some of the above techniques.

Film of course.

But if you want more vintage discoloration for digital, try offsetting the white balance to warmer tones. You can really get some interesting stuff!
