My mother's birthday gift this year was a tiny Instagram DIY photo album I created by printing her instagram photos from 2012 to 2016. See instructions below! Follow my mother on Instagram if you want and me while you're at it but she is much more active so if you want more of ME you better subscribe to my YouTube! ;-)
I didn't go into a lot of detail in the video so here below are some instructions. Please ask questions if anything is unclear!
I downloaded the photos using an addon called DInstagram. Honestly I don't know why they make it so hard to download photos, it would have saved me a lot of time if I could just get ALL of them in one go and go through them on my computer. Those tiny notebooks had a lot of pages so I printed a lot of pictures. A lot of the pictures weren't too high quality but luckily that didn't matter since I was printing them so small (and on such a crummy printer).
Had to use Adobe Bridge to generate a PDF where they were the right size, which was 3.4 x 3.4 cm. Then I simply cut them up and glued them in. When I was done I put a pile of history books on top of it to make sure the pages didn't get all wrinkly, but this was probably a bad move since it contributed to the colours bleeding together. If you attempt this, leave the book open instead and let it dry out properly - as you see in the video I have some problems with the pages sticking together too. I'm really terrible at this haha!
The song in this video is "Before I Sleep" by Maciojad.
This video was shot with a Panasonic GH4 and a 14-42mm f/3.5-5.6 lens.
PS: She liked it! :-)
