DIY Project #36: Make a Modern Silhouette

1

Along with our La Sardina DIY camera we’d like to present several DIY projects to inspire you. This project is a fun tutorial on how to create modern silhouettes by Linda. Have fun!

If you are looking for a way to decorate a room with a simple but elegant style, these silhouettes are the best! If you want to know how to do it, read the full tutorial on our very new DIY project page.

But what has this to do with the competitions section? Well, we’d like to try something new – complete the steps, then take one of your beloved analogue cameras (or the new La Sardina DIY camera), document the results and submit the photos once they are developed here. Please don’t upload any digital photos, don’t submit anything unrelated to this project (as much as we’d like to see your kid blowing out the birthday candles, this is not the place) and watch out, the limit is two photos.

This is for fun and we’d like to present more projects like this in the future. See them all under diy.lomography.com. Let us know in the comments what you think of this and how you like this very project. We are looking forward to hearing from you!
