New Assignment: Going Retro

Old has never been this new. Whatever magazine you've been browsing for some years, you inevitably came across past revisited and often enough, revised. Fascination with the past has been connected to our recent lifestyle changes and need for something reliable and solid, to our preference for prosperity ages and romantic decades. Whatever its reasons, the fact remains that this fascination feeds the need for retro&vintage imagery.



So....it's back, it's hot and it's retro. Let's follow trends, go back in time for props and settings that are now fashionable and show the old new.



Fashion is not the only industry with the retro/vintage fever. Home appliance and decoration industries, car manufactures or label/packaging designers have many gone retro. Go through your grandma's wardrobe, wash granddad's car and have your setting ready. Choose your decade and stick to it. You can be a fifties rock-n-roller, a sixties hippie or an eighties hip hopper. We'll leave the topic to you, as long as it looks and feels retro. For your models, think of tea dresses, frocks and pin-up clothing, bowling shoes and polka dots, flared pants and headbands, shoulder pads and washed denim. Think of bobs, pompadours, pixies, bouffants, afro and punk, of black eyeliner, red lipstick and colorful make-up. Colorful wallpaper, flowery curtains, gigantic colorful fridges, jukeboxes, barstools, bubblegum colored diners and vintage cars should not miss from your settings. It's important you also convey the appropriate light and mood. We're traveling back from hazy to Technicolor, going grunge, adopting comic book or pop art styles.



We will reward best look-and-feel retro images with $300 for the first place, $200 for the second place and $100 for the third place and we'll also toss in our never-go-out-of-fashion Dreamstime branded T-shirts for a vintage looks.



Go back and good luck.

nice one. I know that has been asked a thousand times but don´t find it right now. I remember that we can submit images that are already part of our portfolio. What happens if these images are also on other sites ? I would deactivate them immediately upon approval, absolute no problem, but due to contract restriction this deactivation might not occur in real time, at least from one site i know, so they might be still available within a month or so. Would it still possible to submit such files ?

Assignment images need to be uploaded as exclusive. The exclusive images cannot be sold via other sale venues so you cannot have an exclusive image still online on other sites after uploading it on ours. We recommend you check the terms of these other sites. From our experience, it sometimes work to upload another file as replacement for the one you wish to disable.

Sounds like a fun assignment! However, a question about vintage cars--obviously they'll have to be shot so that no brands are visible? Just checking!

Problem. Many retro objects/brands, example old cars, are easily recognized. How do you get around that? Wondering about copyright issues?

If you remove the brands and other recognizable insignia (car names, etc), it should not pose a problem. Of course, brands like Porsche, Ferrari and Harley Davidson will still be copyright protected and off limits for an assignment.

I have doubts about what to submit: as Matthewbam has asquen, is it allowed to submit old pics taken in 60s or 70s? Not mine (I was born in 1980 hehe) but from relatives, with the model&property releases



Another question: old objects. Is it ok to shoot old objects in an appropiate setting? (for example, an old typeritter put in an antique desk, etc)



Are cassette tapes a suitable subject for this assignment? (i'm not thinking in simple cassette in white background but a more elaborated setting with them)



thank you very much!

It's not possible submit files that are already uploaded and accepted by DT (files that are listed under "Your online files")?

IS it possible, risto40. In fact I have had accepted files for assignment which where already online. Admins recommended to wait until the assig. file is accepcted and then disable the old approved file. That's what I did. (if the assign. is not accepted, then don't touch the accepted one :)

Ok. Thanks for the answer! Sorry for bad grammar earlier. I skipped the night to welcome the sunrise at the bog. I changed the sentence and I was too tired to notice that.
