Showing off your love for all things analogue is easy and downright chic if you have this DIY lamp which is accented by the use of 35mm film reels. Try to make it as minimal as you can and let the reels become the focal point!
35mm film reels
A steel bell or something to act as a base
Other items you may want to add such as springs
Cannibalize the bell. Remove the handle. You just want to use it as a base.
Stick the metal rod inside the bell.
Run the light bulb’s power cord along the metal rod, concealing it.
Put the film reels in, as well as the spring accents if you choose to do so.
Finish it off by attaching the light bulb, then the utensil holder.

Analogue photography alone is tricky business for the newbie, and film development is another skill to master. Learning never stops at just a tutorial or two. Van Dan, a music producer and photographer, gives a comprehensive breakdown of film development for experts and neophytes alike.

This is how I discovered (and fell in love with) liquid emulsion. Liquid emulsion is photographic emulsion which you can melt down and paint on any surface. You can then expose an image and develop it using traditional darkroom chemicals. In this article, I would like to explain the process a little, so that if you are also interested in giving this fun process a go, you can!
