Thought about how to do a new version of it... Decided to try shooting a Holga camera w/ 120 film because I've been meaning to anyway. My wife took the film shots... I took the final shot in my classroom studio with a couple tungsten bulbs and the negatives on a light board, which I am behind.

Here is my studio:

Pretty happy with the finish--would've liked to crack the top thirty. Oh well. I think I didn't get enough contrast in the negatives...

This is fun. Is that a sheet of negatives then? Very cool. I love looking at all the mini-photos too.

Nice negative makes you look slightly insane, which is just about right for someone shooting with a Holga. Nice job. 9

Here a idea I had for a title. "Hey two negatives do make a positive!"
