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!
