Formerly known as the Analog Cucumber, Digital Pickle specializes in transforming predigital memories into high-def formats that are compatible with modern media. Digital Pickle's VHS-to-DVD video-transfer services save old home videos before their aging ribbons begin to disintegrate or reveal that Ringo Starr is dead when played backward (prices start at $20 to create a DVD of up to two hours). Using state-of-the-art equipment, Digital Pickle's skilled technicians will synchronize frames, stabilize images, and reduce white noise in the original video, returning it to you in its completed form for enhanced reminiscing. In addition to video preservation and conversion, Digital Pickle also provides photo-digitalization (starting at $0.39/photo) and audio-transfer services (starting at $25/tape), which relocate yesteryear's portraits and ballads into modern-day PCs.
Iconic Pinups's skilled photographers capture gorgeous shots while unleashing customers' inner femme fatales. Before the shoot, subjects don their own outfits or borrow some from the studio's collection of vintage-style pantsless pants, then bask in full makeup and hairstyling to help them transform into midcentury pinup beauties. Brandishing eggbeaters in the vintage kitchen or donning cowboy boots before grabbing a guitar and sprawling across a bed, women of all shapes and sizes are led by the photographers through a series of provocative poses during each shoot. In addition to private sessions, the studio also hosts pinup parties, dolling up ladies for special events such as bachelorette and birthday parties.
