Vintage Swim: Put A Feather In It

Vintage Styling With Feathers

More often than not you'll see feathers incorporated into Pip & Estella photography styling. It's not only a branding thing -- feathers were plentiful in the Dickens era, but also because they bring life to a still (and will do the same in your home). Here are three examples:
  1. Feathers add a natural element to a vignette or arrangement. 
  2. We associate feathers with movement and their curved design by nature illustrates that.
  3. Feather add a touch of old, creating a vintage feel.

You'll find feathers styled into a couple of our shots and available in the upcoming Pip & Estella Joss & Main sale event, November 1, 2012. Keep in mind, quality feathers found at estate sales, antique stores work best for getting a polished look so if you have those available to you, it's worth the investment.

In the upcoming weeks we'll explore feathers in various vessels!
