The type of camera, negative and processing were all vastly different then, even the medium they printed on. I'm not sure what the date of the film there was, but some of the ethereal effect can be caused by subject motion.

Some of those old photographs required absurdly long exposures, and ended up soft and alien looking because of it. Photographers even had braces to isolate people's backs and the such so they wouldn't move during the long exposure.

One of the reasons people look so solemn is that they were probably sitting there for a long time. I haven't seen a TON of them or anything, but your example seems like a rather animated one.

Thank you very much for explaining this, I had to clue about the long exposures, this makes it much more clear. And to be honest, I didn't think much about picking the example, just an addition.

Yes, I've got photoshop and it seems it's the best option to archive these effects. I was simply curious if there was any way of acquiring this style without to much pp'ing. Many thanks.

I've actually sat for a photograph when I was younger using vintage equipment. Yeah sitting absolutely still for several minutes isn't fun or easy as any movement can create fuzziness.

Here is a basic video on a similar technique http://learndesigning.oodus.com/lear...intage-photos/
You are going to have to tweak it a little to get a similar look, but it is a starting point at least.

Think ya mean "decoration", not, "decorum"; a lot of the early photography like that was actually erotic - not much in the way of decorum, lol

OT - show us some of your efforts, OP
