Makin’ a list, checkin’ it twice. Adding photo gift tags makes everything nice!
What, you don’t remember that line?
Personalized photo gift tags makes exchanging gifts even more fun than it already is.
Trust us, this tutorial will have you singing along to your favorite Holiday tunes while adding style and personality to your gifts.
Forget the wrapping paper, this year we’re saving the tags!
Last year, we showed you how to one-up those mall elves in the holiday photo game.
This year, we’ll show you how to spin circles around them. Pretty soon those guys are going to be asking *you* for photo tips (and who knows, maybe Santa will hire you as his new photog).
We’re sharing a slew of photo ideas that your family will actually have fun doing! Even the most stoic of teens will crack a smile.
From creative backgrounds to great group photos that take less than 5 minutes to all the holiday lights fun you can imagine, you’re bound to find an idea that’s both creative and a blast.
Those mall elves might have speedy printers, but you have JoJo on your side.
Ever tried painting with light but got an amorphous blob instead of the heart you meant to draw? Us, too.
That’s why light stencils are so so so great!
Instead of free-hand drawing with an LED light, you’ll use a cardboard box with a shape inside of it to shoot super detailed light paintings.
You don’t even have to cut out a stencil!
Just print out an old photo or a silhouette and slide it into your homemade lightbox. Pop the flash a few times, and create surreal dreamscapes even Salvador Dali would be envious of.
What better way to take advantage of those daylight savings hours?
p.s. Make a light stencil photo, and share it with us on Twitter! We’ll spotlight 3 winners on the Photojojo Tumblr. Just 1) Follow us @photojojo and 2) Hashtag it #photojojodiy. We’ll pick winners Monday morning 11/26 PST!
The Holidays are quickly approaching, and it’s time to get crafty.
So what are you bringing to the table?
It may be all about the turkey, dressing and casseroles, but these handmade table place holders are sweeter than pumpkin pie.
This DIY tutorial incorporates some of our favorite things: photos (duh!), tiny pumpkins (yay!) and Thanksgiving (yum!).
They’ll make your dinner table look *awesome*, and they’ll show your loved ones how much they mean to you.
Now isn’t that what Thanksgiving is all about?

Watching the Olympics is crazy-inspiring. Olympians train every single day of their life to claim their title as #1 in the world!

Cubist, Inception-esque, so-freakin’-cool! Call it what you will.
He collages Picasso-esque buildings by digitally breaking up buildings and rotating the pieces into a totally new structure.
It’s his way of seeing the world anew and pushing the limits of what’s possible. (Awesomely, he made it a reality with this real life deconstructed house!)
If you’re inspired by these deconstructed houses, try your hand at panography, make a digital Picasso, or take advantage of Photoshop CS6′s content-aware fill tool, which lets you pick up and move objects in photos super easily.
Prom photo-ops have traditionally come in two flavors.
1) A camera-wielding parent on the front porch 2) The dude your high school hired arranging your arms into awkward poses.
You can shoot a mean photo, so why not try your hand at playing photographer for the night? For a kickstart, we put together a guide for prom photos that are as cool and fun as you are.
Learn how to levitate in photos or how to make your own photobooth for a post-prom party.
You only get to go to prom once (or twice, if you’re cool like that). So make photos that’ll wow your date and will be awesome to look at years later!
Paint and clay are some artist’s medium of choice. Yours? Photos!
Artists Nerhol and Michael Mapes collaged photos into sculptural masterpieces that’ll inspire you to try something similar with your own photos!
Nerhol (duo Ryuta and Yoshihisa) makes 3D paper-cut portraits. They start by shooting lots of portraits of one person in three minutes.
After printing and piling the photos into a stack, they cut through the stack to reveal all of the layers of photos below for a three-dimensional image.
Michael Mapes’ take on photo sculptures involves cutting up a single image and putting it back together like a mosaic.
The twist is that each piece of the photo is different — some are cut into circles, squares, put into bottles or under magnifiers. The final image looks like a rad display that you might see at a museum.
Get inspired by checking out these two projects below.

Every year, a strange and wonderful phenomenon takes place. *Every* object around you transforms into a camera.
No kidding. One time, we saw a refrigerator take a picture of an egg. Then the egg snapped a picture of a bell pepper. Before the bell pepper could take a picture, someone ate it!
Let Worldwide Pinhole Photography Day redefine your idea of what a camera can be. It’s happening this year on April 29th!
From your own fist to a saltine cracker, we’ve rounded up astounding pinhole cameras with tips for your own camera creations.
