A Profesh Photographer
This is Margo. ->
She takes all the photos for the Photojojo Shop, like these. ->
She gets money (& snacks) for doing that, so that makes her a professional photographer!
We snuck a video camera into the photo studio at Photojojo HQ so you can watch her work … LIVE.
See just what a pro photog does all day.
How does she set up her lights? Where does she position the camera? What kind of snacks are those?

They say a picture is worth a thousand words. So, we did some math…
Turns out, a double exposure is worth two thousand words!
When you meld one image onto another, all of those extra words tend to run along the lines of, “Wow! Cool! Looks neat! I love it. How did you…?”
Sure, there are apps to fake double exposures and you can spend hours in photoshop or a darkroom (remember those?) creating ‘em.
*total value = 4,000 words
Sure paper bags are alright for carrying lunches.. but what they’re GREAT for is making scrap books!

Go on, unleash your inner bag lady and take filling the pages to a whole new level!
You’ve pretty much mastered the selfie … impeccable arm extension, flawless duck face, precision head tilt.
All that perfection can get boring.
It’s time to make the switch to Pano Selfies.
Give your selfies some edge with distorted perspective, glitchy stitching and guaranteed laughs from all who see ‘em.
1. Put your camera into Panoramic mode or fire up any auto-stitching pano app.
2. Point your camera at your face and start the pano. It can be tricky since you have to use the back-facing camera, but practice makes perfect (or a bit easier).
3. Move you camera from one side of your face to the other. Use your whole arm, don’t just tilt the phone. Add wiggles, bumps, move the camera closer/farther from your face or change your expression as the phone passes by, for max silliness.
4. Share! Throw your masterpiece onto the web with #panoselfie.
