Hanging Your Photos Loose

3

Here is an idea on how to display your photos. It’s about filling all corners of your house with the photos that you took. My next thought when the word “photo” comes in mind is the word “frame”. That’s getting kind of old. Learn more after the break.

Everyone loves photos, but framing them is a little bit old. Now everybody has a digital frame, but that’s not for romantics. I love looking at my photos because it brings me new memories and new ideas. So my variation for a frame is a chain. A chain of photos is displayed all over my house — in my kitchen, in my room, the living room, everywhere! Here’s how I did it.

Materials:

  • a pair of scissors
  • glass table
  • transparent duct tape
  • photoclips
  • ruler
  • photos

First, I choose what photos to stick according to my theme and the exposure. Second, I aligned the photos on the glass table, leaving a space of 1 cm between them. I chose a glass table because when I tape it, it won’t leave any ugly dusty marks on the duct tape.

Third, I glued the front and also the back of the photos (after I aligned them to be straight). Tape the back of the duct tape so it won’t stick on other surface and will remain clean, almost unnoticeable.

Last but not least, display it where you want.

You can create anything, taping photos horizontally, creating garlands for Christmas, or vertically, like I did.
Good Luck!

    Chemical Manipulations with the Lomo’Instant

    Perhaps you’ve already had chance to try light painting, multiple exposures and long exposures with your Lomo’Instant, but what can you experiment with next? Well, that’s exactly the thought I had which led to giving this Tipster a go. I wanted to shoot Lomo’Instant photos which felt a bit “messier” than what I’m usually used to and to use a technique which would open up new possibilities with the kinds of images I could create with my favorite instant camera. Well, here I go!

    Spinner 360: Pull the Cord and Let the Magic Happen!

    The story between the Spinner 360 and I goes way back to the year 2010, when Lomography decided to send me a beta model of the Spinner 360 to test. It was a complete surprise! I thought, "What the hell is that?" as I first took this camera out of the package. Then, when my little brother grabbed it from me and pulled the cord, it buzzed and turned 360°! We all had the same expression: "Whoa..."
