Happy 2014! The future is now.
We love Januaries. They’re a great time to look back at the amazingness of the previous year, and make resolutions for the new one.
We’ve done our fair share of looking back, poring over every “Best Photos of the Year!” list we could find on these here internets.
Then, we resolved to let all the great shots we just saw inspire us to improve our photo skills in 2014.
We’ve compiled a handy list of the top of the tops: our favorite “best photo” lists and what we’ve learned from them.
It’s our last all-new gift guide of the year! So we’ve brought out our very finest photo gifts – beautiful camera bags, photo-themed décor and more.
Plus, we’re showing off our top selling products of all-time, that are sure to be a real hit on Christmas morn’.

Party time! Excellent!
‘Tis the season for some serious partying and these days no party is complete without a photo booth.
Setting up a photo booth is as simple as providing a backdrop and encouraging your pals to point their smartphones toward it.
We’re here to help you with that first part (you herd your own friends in front it).
We’ll teach you three easy-peasy ways to craft a party poppin’ backdrop.
Give your party photos that extra schwing and have your friends chanting “we’re not worthy! we’re not worthy!”
Our friend Margo (dancin’ on the right there) has a real gift for making gifs.
She can crank out a masterful gif, in a jiff.
Margo has made some jolly good gifs for the Photojojo Shop (and points beyond).
So, we grabbed our most giferiffic questions, and sat her down to gab gifs.
We’ve gathered her answers in The Ultimate Gif Guide. Read it to find how she makes gorgeous gifs, how you can too and just how to pronounce “gif” in the first place.
When it comes to movies, editing is kind of a big deal.
Without it, we wouldn’t have twist endings. (Looking at you, M. Night.) We wouldn’t have out-of-order movies to entertain our brains (Marty McFly 4ever). We wouldn’t even have beginnings, middles, and ends!
Frankly, movies would be pretty weird and probably not very good at all without editing.
Thanks to Instagram’s 4.1 update, you can now upload videos to Instagram, meaning a whole new world of video editing has opened up!
Sound, filters, transitions, sequencing — there is so much you can do to an Instagram video before uploading it. And awesomely, you can do it all on your phone.
Consider this guide an editing workshop that’ll turn your Instagram videos into cinematic artworks served 15 seconds at a time.

Whoever said “If you can’t take the heat, get out of the kitchen” probably wasn’t aware we would be making such a liberal interpretation of the saying.
Heat comes from sun. Summer sun is bright. Bright light is tricky to photograph.
It’s no secret that bright midday sun is one of the more challenging types of light to expose properly. We’re talking blown out highlights, harsh shadows, squinty subjects… oh my!
Don’t sweat it, friends. This guide will show you how to get the best shots in the midday sun.
We can wrangle those top-down rays with quick easy fixes to soften harsh light, resolving your bright light issues before you even have time to hashtag them.
How else are you going to document that tan you’ve been working on all summer?

Is this real life or are you in a Taylor Swift music video? You’re in the middle of one of the best kisses of your life!
Amidst the fireworks, stars, and confetti, you catch a glimmer off a camera lens five inches from your face, followed by the sound of a shutter. Moment. Ruined.
Cameras might be notorious kiss-ruiners, but they don’t have to be! Our pal Haley Sheffield is a fantastic wedding photographer who’s a master at capturing kisses that look real, natural, and downright beautiful.
Haley’s tips will show you how to get your couple comfortable and how to direct them to get the best kissing photo possible. Most couples aren’t used to kissing in front of a camera, but they’ll be on-camera kissers in no time.
Now you can have the best kiss of your life and catch it on camera, too.
