2D Wedding Photographs Converted into Gorgeous 3D Slow-Mo Zooms

Remember that slow-motion wildlife footage that consisted entirely of still photos animated with parallax? French photographer Sebastien Laban does the same thing, except with his wedding photographs.

In the video above, all the apparently 3D scenes you see are actually the result of using some After Effects magic on ordinary 2D photographs.

Turn a VHS Case into a Picture Frame with a Hidden Storage Compartment

Always looking to upcycle her old things, entrepreneur Heidi Lehto came up with the idea of turning VHS cassette cases into 3D picture frames that have a secret storage compartment. She drilled the case into the wall using a couple of screws, and uses it as an easy-to-access business card holder.

Vintage Cameras Turned Into Nightlights

Photographer Jason Hull has a hobby of taking old cameras from the 1950s and 1960s and turning them into beautiful nightlights for his house. He writes,

I’m not modifying cameras if they are in pristine condition or if they’re rare, I’d rather they stay usable as cameras in those cases. The ones I’ve chosen are lightweight plastic, produced in huge numbers and easily found for sale at flea markets/garage sales/eBay.

It’s a fantastic idea for people who want to add some photo-awesomeness to their home. You can see more photos of his creations in this Flickr set.

Old Camera and Tripod Turned into an Awesome Desk Lamp

Kirsty over at kootoyoo transformed her old Cosina CT-2 into a neat desk lamp that emits light from inside the lens. The legs on the tripod can be adjusted, so it can be used as a floor lamp as well. It’d be awesome if she could make it so adjusting the aperture on the lens would change the brightness of the light. Kirsty is currently writing a tutorial that’ll teach you how to make your own — it’ll go on sale starting next week.
