Upcycling film cassettes

We really love making something new out of something old.  Rediscovering a lost memory by restoring a photograph is our specialty, but so is creating unique photographic gifts.  This is where we discovered how fun it is to use film cassettes as the metal backing for our tintypes.  These pins were coated one at a time and were exposed in a 1960's Minolta 35mm camera.  They feature some of our favorite cameras and are a fun gift for any photographer or photo lover!
