The Making of: Meet Me at the Rabbit Hole

9

Here’s a tipster about how to make a lovely lomographic collage. You can try it yourself! It’s easy and fun!

So here’s what you need:

  • Some creativity
  • Some prints of your lomographs
  • A scissor
  • Glue
  • A piece of cardboard (or something else you want to use as background)

Step 1: Choose some pictures

Choose the pictures you want to use in your collage. Maybe you have a certain concept in mind, like a colour theme or a song you are inspired by. You can also just choose pictures that you like and that fit well together. Choose as many pictures as you want. Be creative!

Here, you can see the pictures I used for my collage:

Step 2: Prepare your pictures

Maybe you need your pictures at a different size than the original. In that case you can resize and crop them on your computer (in photoshop or paint) prior to printing. I wanted to use the apple, but needed it to be smaller, so I resized it in my photo program and printed it several times.

Step 3: Cut, arrange and stick

Cut out the objects you want to use and arrange the different pieces and pictures until you are satisfied with the result. Now glue it and stick it on a steady background. I simply used a piece of cardboard, but of course you can use any other background you like.

‘Meet Me at the Rabbit Hole’:

Now it’s your turn! :)

    I would suggst using a piece of acid-free mat board or fome-core for the background. You can pick up smaller pieces (aka offcuts) from framers really cheaply. I also get blanks from eBay.

    Also use an acid-free glue designed for photos & scrapbooking.

    It would be a shame to put all that work into an image to just have it discolour & disintegrate over the years because good materials weren't used in the assembly of the collage.

    My Lomo’Instant Quick Tips

    I backed the Kickstarter project for the Lomo’Instant earlier this year and was thrilled to receive it last week. I love how the camera naturally encourages you to experiment with its different features, whether it’s through flashing your multiple exposures with different colors or trying different creative techniques after your shots has been ejected. Here are a few tips from what I’ve discovered from playing with the camera so far (and a couple of tips I want to try out in future)!
