Laptopograms: Expose prints with your laptop screen!


Ah, the sun! The big, bright strobe-light in the sky!

We love our reliable ‘ol pal, but with so many new gadgets popping up, we’d be fools not to take advantage of their photo-gramming capabilities!

We’re talkin’ laptopograms.

Aditya Mandayam developed this exciting new way of making prints: press photo-paper against your laptop screen, flash the screen, and dip the paper in developer, stop, and fix.

If you don’t have a laptop, TVs, iPhones, iPads, and other illuminating gadgets work, too! What we love the most about laptopography is that it’s wide open for experimentation.

Curate a show of Facebook profiles, hold a photo-shoot of your friends via Skype, make prints of your camera-phone photos, or create photos from a paused Youtube vid!

Yup, it’s official. Digital asked analog to marry it, and they’re running off to Vegas.
