You’re walking down the beach on a sunny day and spot a sweet shot, but the sun is making it impossible to see anything, including the LCD screen on your camera!

Your sweet shot? Your friend’s head is chopped off, and you’ve focused in on a surly seagull. Not cool.

Fortunately, there’s a smart solution to using live view mode outdoors: a DIY DSLR viewfinder!

This crafty viewfinder is kinda like the DSLR equivalent of an old timey photographer using a cloak with a large format camera.

It shades your screen from the sun, letting you compose your shots 10x more easily. With a little DIY action, you’ll get the shot you meant to get from here on out!

How to Make a Journal With Photos for Pages
feature-notepadsExtra photos for bloggers: 1, 2, 3, 4

When one of us was a wee youngster, she wrote her initials plus Cody Henderson’s in big hearts on every available surface.

On the walls.
On the sidewalk.
On the carpet.

She got in a lot of trouble.

If only she’d known then what she knows now, she’d have made this book instead. A journal with pages made of photos of walls, sidewalks, bathroom mirrors: anything you could write graffiti on in real life.

Note to self: next time.

Turn Old CD Cases into Wondrous Spinning Photo Carousels

Extra photos for bloggers: 1, 2, 3

Why would you settle for photos that just sit there when you can get photos that *spin*?

With a few CD jewel cases, you can make a free and E-Z photo frame carousel, a rad DIY photo project from Tiffany Threadgould’s DIY book, ReMake It.

It’s a frame-holder that fits 10 photos and delightfully spins around a base just like your favorite childhood ride of yore.

Best of all, when one photo starts feeling played out (kinda like your old Eminem CD), you can simply give it a spin for a whole new photo to decorate your desk.

Start digging through your CD bin and give your garbage and/or Garbage another go.

We’ve always suspected our camera was a neo-postmodernist.

Now our camera has joined forces with our tablet and phone to throw our minds for an even more psych-optic monkey wrench.

By cleverly overlapping gadgets and photos, you can make picture-in-picture art that makes your electronic gizmos look completely transparent. Your meta masterpiece is waiting to be made!

If you know us, you know we love instant film. A lot.

So, when we heard Impossible Project would be releasing two new & improved instant films, we jumped at the chance to give ‘em a whirl.

First we met PX 680: A film that produces beautifully saturated prints that practically ooze with color.

Second, Black Frame PX 600 silver shade: A black and white film with sleek black frames for a classic, gallery-ready look.

Both films are so easy to use and versatile, your camera might write you a love letter for feeding it so well.

Plus: While experimenting, we found a technique that’ll let you transform your new black frame images into photo transparencies!

It’s simple, fun, and takes less than five minutes. We were so impressed with the results, we had to share.
