80s style portraits recreated

If you grew up in the 1980s, you might recall some peculiar things. Among them the strange fashion and photography. Thick ties, equally thick mustaches and polaroid cameras. These were just some of the things one would see. Photographs would have a saturated, sepia tone and the use of starlight filters was common.

Robbie Augspurger recreates that look, using old-style wardrobes and lighting. Check out some of his 80s style portraits:

Augspurger’s collection of vintage clothing alone is impressive. He uses friends and family for most of his work, instead of professional models. And he has become quite popular. A number of families express their interest in this look.

Do you have any vintage clothing lying around? Why not give this a try? Should be a lot of fun. via
