Sending and receiving packages, mailing out photo postcards, and even that newfangled electronic “e-mail” stuff.

We love sending you emails packed with the coolest photo stuff, but we extra-specially love when you write us back!

Recently we’ve gotten a few emails asking for tips on what to do with all those extra photos you have around your house.

DIY Photo Magic: How to Turn Black and White Photos into Full Color Images!

Extra photos for bloggers: 1, 2, 3

We love the ease of digital photography, but sometimes we get an itch for some experimentation.

We want to feel like old school photography masters: mixing chemicals in darkrooms and watching images as they slowly develop.

So, what did we do when we learned that some of the first color photographs were made almost 150 years ago, and they weren’t made with color film?

We learned how to use our digital cameras to party like it was 1909, of course!

Now we’re going to share everything we learned and show you how to bring out your inner mad-photo-scientist to make full color photographs using only black and white ones!

Double Exposures: A DIY Project That Brings Friends Together With Photos!

Extra photos for bloggers: 1, 2, 3

We love hanging out with our friends, and we’ve had a great summer full of lunches in the park, guests from around the globe, and days off at the beach.

With summer winding down, we have a lot less beach days in our future, and no out-of-town guests scheduled to sleep on our couch.

…That’s a problem for us.

Naturally, we tried to fix the problem with photos.

Were we successful? Of course!

Our solution is a fun project that you can make with anyone you choose, whether they share a dorm room with you or live halfway across the world.

Use Photo Magic to Trick Your Eyes And Play Pranks With Friends

Extra photos for bloggers: 1, 2, 3

Last week when Jen of team Photojojo went to New York for a few days, we wanted her to know how much she was missed.

We thought long and hard about how we could prank her upon her return…

…Fake parking tickets on her car?
…Stapler in a Jell-O mold?
…Cover everything in post-its?

It was a hard decision, but in the end we knew the best way to prank her would be by using what we all love best: Photography!

What did we do? Read on to find out and try it yourself!

Extra photos for bloggers: 1, 2, 3

Did you know that history’s first photographic images were made without a camera?

It’s true!

Way back in the 1830s, William Fox Talbot discovered he could place objects on photo-sensitive paper to make images called “photograms.”

We’re going to show you how to make them with instant film, so we call ‘em “instagrams!” (We also call them “awesome!”)

Fourth of July Special: Paint Your Photos with Sparklers!

We have some funny traditions here in the U.S., especially when it comes to the Fourth of July.

A typical Fourth goes like this:

1) Wake up. Go to beach or pool and acquire sunburn.

2) Eat an oblong food (i.e. hot dog, corn, popsicle, beer, etc).

3) Set things on fire and watch them explode.

Obviously, the best and most anticipated part of the day is #3!

But after the fireworks show, we’re left in an anticlimactic daze. Not to fret: we found the perfect solution…painting your photos with sparklers!

You don’t have to live in the U.S. to play with sparklers this weekend! All you need are friends, a camera, and a pack of sparklers for an evening full of oh-so sparkly play!

How to Paint Your Photos with Sparklers

How to Make a Pop-Up Photo Diorama!

Extra photos for bloggers: 1, 2, 3

We’ve come a long way since 2nd grade with our Instapaper iPhone iPad apps and our acquired appreciation for oil barons who drink other people’s milkshakes.

But just because we’re “grown-ups” doesn’t mean we don’t enjoy an occasional crustless PB&J or even a serious diorama-making session!

Dioramas are an original way to show off your photos when you don’t have a frame handy (or even if you do).

All it takes is a pair of scissors and a few drops of glue to get your photos from flat to pop.
