Mix the Fun of Instant Photos with the Dazzle of 35mm and Display Them Together!

2012-09-11 3

Partially inspired by the uniformity and precision of specimens in a lab, this method of displaying your Lomographs is a simple trick that blends both the fun and carefree feel of instant photography, with the more precise and detailed approach of 35mm.

What you will need:
*Long sewing pins (normally used to hold fabric together whilst you attempt to sew). These were inspired by the pins used in a scientific environment to help label lab subjects

  • Instant photos!
  • Regular 35mm photos printed with a white border in either 5×7 inch or 4×6 (doesn’t matter as long as it’s uniform)
  • A drawing board of any other surface you don’t mind putting holes in!

How to do it:

  • Arrange the photos in a grid format with the white borders overlapping so only one of the white borders from each pair of photos is showing
  • Once fixed in place with pins, overlay an instant photo in each corner until you run out!

For a long time I was looking for a way to put instant photos and regular photos together in such a way that shows the two sides to my style of photography, fun and precision, whilst still keeping each photo largely in view! I hope you like it!
