Photo Trends: Vintage Postcards

Vintage postcards are very popular in photography stills.  Finding vintage postcards is easy type postcard in the search bar at Etsy and you'll find nearly 50,000 items.  The difficult part is photographing them.  They're flat and hold little texture or color.  I find stacking them together and binding with string or ribbons works well.  What do you suggest for photographing postcards?

  1. Perhaps hanging them from a mini clothesline with tiny clothes pins?

    I love old postcards. So much history. :)

  8. Stunning. I have been trying to work with textures, sometimes is not easy, but you make them look perfect every time.
    I visited your store and love it.
