How a CD Shelf Turns into a Camera Shelf

16

Because I own tiny, old cameras from flea markets or from the 'Bucht', I wanted to present them for visitors and didn't want that they go to seed in a closet.

I’m not a big fan of glass cabinets. Either I don’t like them, or they are too expensive (then I would prefer to buy a new camera).

Some time ago CD-shelves crossed my way in a furniture shop and I had the idea to use them for my cameras. Once I bought just a shelf, then some time later a second and somehow the next day two other.

Thus my cameras now have enough room to stand around and look pretty. Of course, open shelves gathering dust, but it keeps limited until now because I use the cameras. That means that they don’t get dusty quickly.

I’m very satisfied with the simple and cheap solution. The shelves are very overcrowded (I just have to many equipment and photos) but this can you solve for yourself how you want.

Now, how can you take your analogue light paintings from the ordinary to the outstanding? After the carriage came the car, so we definitely need some spacy inventions to follow the old school light pen. So here it is, our new best friend: The Pixelstick!

    Registering Moments With the Lomo'Instant

    Some people say instant photos bring about a feeling of nostalgia. Although I often use the Lomo'Instant Camera with different crazy accessories such as the Splitzer and color gels, I have to agree there is something about it — dreamy vignettes maybe? — that always makes me want to go back in time and experience it all over again. In the name of analogue photography and good old memories, we passed by some classic spots in Vienna and took one shot after the other. Take a closer look at our gallery.
