Like instant film and harem pants, GIFs are making quite the comeback.

While we love taking photos on land, and sometimes high up in the sky, we can’t resist the magic that takes place underwater.
Real life Nemos, free floating props, and fashionable mermaids show us that underwater is the place to be!
Get a camera that can work in a (extremely) wet environment, and dive in to capture and
conquer the wonders of the water world.

Photography doesn’t have to be all about fancy gadgets and technology. (Though sometimes it’s more fun that way.)
Like a master chef or Jackie Chan in a bar fight, it’s all about knowing what to do with whatever you have on hand.
If you just want some great-looking product shots for your Etsy shop, or tutorial photos for that Instructable you’re writing, you only need a simple home studio.
If you’ve got a tripod, a flash and a window, you’re more than halfway there already. Read on for how to make an inexpensive, so-simple-it’s-practically-zen photo setup.

In Photo 101 the third thing they teach you, after “remove your lens cap” and “this is a shutter button,” is to keep shadows out of your photos.
In Photojojo’s Photo 1-0-FUN, shadows are chillin’ at the cool kids’ table.
The secret to success is in knowing how to work with them. Our list-o-awesome shadow ideas can help you get started.
Learn how to make your shadows multi-colored, transform teeny props into massive monsters, or create a cinematic scene with dramatic light.
Unless you’re a Vampire, grab your shadow and head towards the light!
Nikon vs Canon, Mac vs PC, Rebecca Black vs Justin Bieber.
2-sided feuds aren’t a foreign concept considering you’re a Canon/Mac/Bieber appreciator.
When it comes to phones, you’re an Android lover.
These are the top 10 crowd favorites!
Plus, as an added bonus, we rounded up apps designed to make life easier while you’re out shooting with your non-phone camera.

When it comes to photography, we like to root for the little guy.
He’s the picture taker that works hard, is easy going and is always around when you need him.
Yep, we’re talking about one of our old favorites: the disposable camera.
While we love adding filters to our phone pics and making masterpieces with our DSLRs, there’s something magical about disposable cameras we can’t forget…
They’re cheap, fun to play with and can do almost anything!
Here’s our top 20 list of didn’t-know-you-could-do-that ways to use, abuse, modify, and make the most of your disposable camera!
Rounding up your family for holiday-time photos is a feat intended only for the super-human (i.e. Elves at your local mall. They’re little, but mighty).
It hasn’t always been pretty, but this year, that’s all going to change!
2010 is THE year for the holiday photo you’ve always dreamed of, whether you’re sending them ‘cross country to friends and family or just want to grab a shot of everyone while they’re all in one spot.
No more awkward blank stares and no more heart-breaking sobbing children. It’s all uphill from here!
