old school photography

This weekend, we’re going old school! Use PicsArt to give your photos an old school vibe, and submit them to the contest using the hashtag #wapOldSchool.

This is a broad topic with tons of different possibilities, so let your creativity be your guide this weekend. We recommend starting with a photograph of something that could look retro—an old car, some vintage jewelry, your thrift shop treasures. These sort of images will translate better into old school photos than, say, a snapshot of the latest skyscraper constructed in your city or your new smartphone. 

Once you’ve selected your shot, you have tons of techniques to choose from to give your photos a retro vibe. Check out our step-by step tutorial to pick up a few tips, or whip up your own technique to take your photos back in time. 

Tag your creation with #wapOldSchool to submit it to the contest!
