Displaying analogue cameras are among the most fulfilling aspects of this little hobby of ours. Whether they are working or not, these film shooters show a lot of character and culture. They could be old Kodak Brownies, broken down rangefinders from the FSR, or even one of your first plastic cameras! Enough talk, here’s how to display them using frames!

Materials:

  • Small Frames
  • Command Strips
  • Old cameras

Instructions:

  1. Figure out where you want to hang the cameras/frames. Make the appropriate layouts and measurements
  2. Hang the frame using Command strips or a nail or screw
  3. Place Command strips on the middle of the frame and on the camera.
  4. Once it dries, mount it and marvel at your work!

    You can get frames from www.dickblick.com/products/blick-unfinished-wood-frame/ And you can get broken medium format and some 35mm SLR cameras from eBay for pretty cheap. I got all of my supplies for about $150 but I chose some better cameras from eBay www.ebay.com/sch/Vintage-Cameras-/101643/i.html?_sop=1

    I am a Mad Analogue Scientist: New Experiments with 35mm Films and Chemicals

    Unfortunately, it happens sometimes that your resulting pictures are not what you expected - the image doesn't look that good, the colors are bland, and the subject is banal. Indeed, it couldn't be picture of the year! Herein I propose a second chance for your pictures by modifying your 35mm negatives. Just pick up some ideas from here, experiment, and scan your negatives with the Lomography Smartphone Scanner. Anything is possible: burning, scratching, putting on hydrochloric acid, balsamic vinegar, nail polish, bleach, or raspberry juice... use your imagination and write down your new film soup recipe! You can find a sample of the effects in this article.
