The SLR Sloop Camera Bag

feature-sloopExtra photos for bloggers: 1, 2, 3

We looked everywhere for a camera bag that could carry everything (really, ehv-re-thang). But the ones that could were dreary, drab, and very un-cool.

So heck, we made our own. Say hello to The SLR Sloop. A camera bag with room for your SLR, lenses, flash, keys, wallet … and most importantly, room for your style.

Photojojo! The Book

feature-bookExtra photos for bloggers: 1, 2

Three years ago, we set out on a mission: to inspire your digital photos to be more than mere megapixels.

So we started a website, and sent out a newsletter. And then we sent out more newsletters. Then the Photojojo Shop was born (while we kept sending newsletters).

And now … WE HAVE A BOOK! You know — paper, ink, a table of contents. The whole shebang.

Complete with 192 full-color pages of our most popular photo projects (all souped up) plus tons of new ones, and some great ideas from the most talented folks we know.

It’s been a year in the works, and we can. not. wait. for you to see it.

$21.99 at the Photojojo Shop & bookstores near you!

Just RT @photojojo … we’ll be picking winners until Friday.

AND we started a Photojojo Book Group on Flickr for everyone to share their first cuddly book moments.

Look! Below the jump! A sneak peek for you, darling reader: one of the projects from our super fantastic master work of literature (plus 3 more crafty tidbits). Enjoy.

The Photoshop Photo Frame

Extra photos for bloggers: 1, 2

Thanks to Photojojo (and designer Irina Blok), you may now enjoy the comforting presence of Adobe Photoshop even when your computer’s off!

Introducing The Photoshop Photo Frame — a nifty little design piece that’ll surely stop your Photo-shopping heart in its tracks.

This (real life) desktop frame is screen printed down to the last pixel: window buttons, scroll bars, “.jpg” title, and even a “transparent” checkered background.

… now, if only life itself had a friendlier GUI.

As a Mom’s Day thanks (for rearing geeks like us) Photojojo searched far and wide for the cutest darn’d camera bag out there.

‘lo and behold,

$50 at the Photojojo Shop!

Finally, a case for SLRs that’s a bit more, how shall we say this — vivacious? Bold? Jazzy? Bad-ass?

Our little Bowler Bettie is the spunkiest camera tote around. Complete with a cush quilted liner, adjustable divider, two side pockets, and one serious attitude.

Stocking Stuffers Juuuust For You! Yay!

candy canes and tinsel

You know for a fact that we at Photojojo love you little munchkins.

And, because we love you so very much, we stuffed your stockings last night with twelve little goodies! Merry Christmas everybody!

(If you’re not a Christmas person, we declare today your Unbirthday. That’s the reason we got you all these awesome presents!)

Four things for printing:

Lens hoods: Print these out on cardstock for a disposable alternative to the standard pricey lens protector.

DIY flash bouncer: If you bounce your flash unit’s light off the ceiling, it makes your flash pictures look less harsh. But what do you do if there’s no ceiling or if it’s too far away? Use this handy little device instead, bucko. Ta-dah!

Readymech cameras: Pinhole cameras to print and fold together. Now in five super-stylish designs! Oh my!

Wax paper flash diffuser: You know those little white plastic caps that go over the end of your flash unit to soften the light? That’s what this is, except it’s made out of wax paper and costs about 2 cents to make.

We couldn’t fit everything in your stocking, but there are four more printable projects over at DIY Photography!

Three crafty projects:

Photo ornaments: Got a couple extra prints lyin’ around? Then you got yerself some ornaments, Ace.

DIY snow globes: What says Xmas better than Ye Olde Snow Globe? Ye Olde Photo Snow Globe, that’s what.

Paper elves: Full disclosure here: these have nothing whatsoever to do with photography. But they were such awesome little figures that we just had to put them in your stocking. You can make Santa too!

Two games for playing:

Elf Yourself: Our favorite holiday photographic dancing elf site is back! Slap your face on an elf’s body and virtually boogie to your heart’s content.

There are some changes this year; you can’t turn yourself into Scrooge anymore (Bah! Humbug!), but you can make five different elves and make all of ’em dance at the same time. This season’s dance crazes include country, disco, and the Charleston.

Like that? Head on over to Jib Jab and check out their insert-your-photo-here version of It’s a Wonderful Life!

The holiday alphabet game: Take pictures of holiday things that start with each letter of the alphabet. “T” is for tinsel, “C” is for candy cane. Get it? Post your photos on Flickr, or just put ’em up around the house.

One photo guide:

Photographing the holidays: Everything you need to know about taking photos of lights and presents and shiny shiny baubles.

And a partridge in a pear tree. Hurrah!

The Best New Photo Gifts of the Season

We’ve been scouting out new photo goodies like they’re going out of style, and today we’ve got not one or two, but five new goodies to put a smile on your face.

photo decal frames1. Our new Re-Stickable Decal Photo Frames.

These retro frames are made of high-quality wall decal vinyl. They can be removed and repositioned easily, meaning you can swap in new photos in seconds, or move your frames around on a whim.

They’re way cheaper, and far more fun than a trip to the framer.

Re-Stickable Decal Photo Frames are safe for any kind of wall, and we include 8 in every package. Only $20!

magnetic photo rope2. Redesigned Magnetic Photo Rope.

Our all-time bestseller, this simple and modern photo hanger consists of a flexible metal wire with a loop on one end. Stick a pushpin or a thumbtack through the loop, and use the included 8 super-strong, super-tiny neodymium magnets to show off photos of virtually any size.

It works everywhere, and you can swap in new photos in a split-second!

Just in time for the holiday season our friend’s sporting a new longer length and five spiffy new colors. As low as $9.33 each!

Watch our fun demo video to see how it works.

scoop and hoodie camera cases3 & 4. The Hoodie and the Scoop are camera cases that like to party.

These stripey neoprene-y, felt-lined cases are made to fit a variety of slimline cameras. (Pocketable, less than 1″ thick.)

They feature belt loops, expandable pockets for memory cards or extra batteries, and a hard EVA core to protect your fragile LCD screen.

Retire that boring black case and carry your new camera in style. Each case is unique and just $12 and $15!

flickrverse flickr t-shirt5. The Flickrverse T-shirt from our friends at Flickr.

For the very first time, you can now buy Official Flickr gear online — only from the Photojojo Store!

The Fastest Way to Learn Keyboard Shortcuts for Photoshop, Aperture, FCP, and more

Application Keyboard Covers

You know that Photoshop whiz kid friend of yours? The one that plays his keyboard like a Steinway as he dodges and burns his way to photographic perfection?

That could be you.

When we saw these custom-fitted keyboard skins for Macs*, we knew we had to have ’em.

The color-coded covers show you all the hard-to-remember shortcuts for your favorite apps and are available for Photoshop, Aperture, Final Cut Pro, Pro Tools, After Effects, and Logic Pro.

You wouldn’t learn how to type with a keyboard with no letters on it.

So why learn key commands without seeing them right on your keys?
