How to Make Glowing Photo Spheres

Extra photos for bloggers: 1, 2, 3

We’ve seen record temperatures this summer. Sometimes, it’s just too hot to be outside!

But that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy scenic views from the comfort of your living room (and air conditioner).

Learn how to turn your photos into glowing photo spheres!

You’ve seen those plain paper lanterns at the store, and now you can convert them to show off your own bright and colorful photographs.

And when the temperature drops, you can take your photo spheres out on the porch. Your neighbors will appreciate the view.

Now just imagine what adding scent to your photos will do for all those memories you caught on camera!

You can add smell to your photos at home in three DIY ways, and we’ll show you just how below.

Giving Photos a Touch of Picasso — Deconstructed Buildings

Cubist, Inception-esque, so-freakin’-cool! Call it what you will.

Michael Jantzen’s digital deconstructions of houses and churches will make you look twice.

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.

Be a Part of The 100 Project — 100 Cameras, 100 People Between 1 & 100

If you give a one-year-old a camera, what would he photograph? The inside of his mouth? A binky? The world from 25 inches off the ground?

The 100 Project will show you. It’s the newest project from the folks who brought you the Disposable Memory Project. They’re sending 100 disposable cameras to 100 people from ages 1 to 100!

Each person will document a week of their life, answering questions like what’s life like through a 99-year-old’s eyes?

They’re on the search for people in every age group, so you can apply to be a part of it! Check out the 100 so far.

The one-year-old’s already published his photos, so the rest of us kiddos better catch up!

Two Awesome & Creative Ways to Turn Your Photos into Sculpture

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.

#Instaxagram Portraits for Analog & Digital Lovers Alike

Friends get worried when they don’t see you with a camera in tow.

That never happens though because you can always be found with *at least* two. The perfect justification: Instaxgrams.

Kyle Steed’s Instaxgrams are portraits shot half on Instax and half on Instagram.

He starts by taking a photo with his Instax and then holding that print up in front of the same subject and shooting it with his phone.

You can try your own portraits, but don’t stop yourself there. Landscapes and still-lifes make excellent subjects, too.

The analog and digital sides of you will never have a tiff again!

TIP: This project works with *any* kind of camera. Just get a photo printed, and go back to the same spot.

INSPIRATION: Get inspiration at Dear Photograph. (Thanks @moraima_photo!) Or try it digitally. See our tutorial on See-Through Photo Gadgets.

You consider your cameras family.

You remember the day each one came into your life, and you’ve shot handsome portraits of them all. Prism Yard totally gets it.

Prism Yard’s a collaborative gallery where photographers can share and browse photos of each others’ camera collections.

Consider it one part Tokyo Camera Style and one part Camerapedia.

The categories make it easy to find favorites, but it’s also rad for checking out how other photographers are outfitting the same cameras you have at home.

You might even find a few cameras you’ve never seen! omgcamerawishlist.

Make a 3D Photo Booth for GIF-y Memories

The typical photo booth experience goes something like this: press button, contort your otherwise beautiful face into odd shapes, and wait.

You know exactly what’ll pop out. But what if the booth spit out something totally unexpected?

Like a Kit Kat bar? Or a THREE-DEE photo!!

That’s exactly what the Protobooth delivers.

Design firm, Digital Kitchen, made a DIY 3D photo booth out of three Canon 5D MarkIIs and four Macbook Pros.

With a little hackery know-how, they shot animated photo booth photos that wiggle to-and-fro and make you feel like you’re really there … all over again! (See their behind-the-scenes.)

To make your own 3D setup with stuff you already own, check out our 3D how-to. No hackery needed!

How to Be Part of a Global Food Photo Exhibit (Help End Hunger, Too)

You’re ravenous. A most delectable grilled cheese sits before you, melty sides catching your eye.

It’s too beautiful to eat without photographing first!

On February 24th at 12pm EST, you’ll discover you’re not the only one. It’s a global day of photographing your food!

The Meal is calling all foodie photographers to participate in a global food photo exhibit. Your simultaneously shot photos will be collected and shown at The Brooklyn Art Library on March 31st.

It’s for a good cause, too! The Meal has partnered with Action Against Hunger, a non-profit who battles hunger around the world.

It all comes full-circle: your hunger-induced photo helps end hunger for others. Not even scarfing down a grilled cheese sandwich could beat that satisfaction.

The Meal: Documenting a Global Snack

Heads up! If you do submit, that means they can use your photo for promotional reasons. However, they’ll never sell your photo for profit. Read the deets on the Project Agreement!


   
   
#From Where I Stand, Skyscraper Edition

You’ve taken #From Where I Stand shots in a snowy field, in line at the market, on 8 mile hikes and down alleyways in far-off countries.

The last frontier? The ledge of your town’s highest skyscraper.

Sounds scary, but once you scale your way up and point your camera down, you’ll fall in love with what you see.

Dennis Maitland can attest to it. He’s been documenting his rooftop adventures in Detroit by photographing his feet over ledges.

The result is an awesome collection of aerial views with a touch of self-portrait.
