Tipster of the Week: How My Photos Came to Life

If you're the type that keeps a bunch of photos inside a box or someone who likes to see the different colours your shots has in an epic kind of a Lomowall while marveling how great they are, then you might want to try this one for another way of viewing your lovely Lomographs!

3D Your Picture in Analog Way by eastmoe

Prepare your photos you selected that you would like to transform and get yourself an art knife and a cutting board. On each of the photos, you should decide which of it should be popping out from the background, so it’s really important to pick the shots that have a subject that can be separated and will become an effective foreground. I would also recommend having 2 prints of the shots you’ll be using.

Now comes the fun part, slicing. Carefully outline the subject with your art knife or cutter starting from the bottom left or if you’re left-handed, bottom right and don’t forget not to cut the base of your subject. After that, just simply pull the sliced part while making a fold at its base and add the second print of the shot on its back just to cover up the hole you’ve made.

Et voilà! You now have your very own 3D Lomo! It’s something easy to do but a very refreshing way to see your analogue shots! How about a 3D LomoWall, anyone? :)
