A List Apart
"I'm never disappointed by Photojojo." -- Dave Johnson
Do you remember the first time you held a camera?
Pushing on a button somehow procured a preserved rectangular memory that you could hold in your hand.
From that day on you never looked back…mostly because you were too busy looking into the viewfinder.
World Photography Day is tomorrow, August 19th, and it’s the perfect day to show your camera some love!
Whether your preferred camera is plastic, pinhole, or also known as your phone, we’ve collected the most inspiring ideas and even a photo themed mixtape to celebrate your very own photo day at home.
Hats off to you, Mr. Daguerre.

Whether you’re team Daguerre or team Talbot, both declared these two photographic techniques in 1839.
It was in that year that the French government announced photography on August 19th as “a gift to the free world.” And they were so right!
If you look to the right here, you can see one of Daguerre’s first photos which features a person standing on the sidewalk. Look closely. You’ll find him (or her?)!
Here are a just few to get you kickstarted:
Off the Wall Projects
Throw a party or stay in and read!
Party! Party! Party!
Or chill out at home…
Share your photos
Share your photo talents with the world. The internet’s pretty good for that. Upload your photos to Flickr, and add them to the Photojojo Flickr group. Caption your photo with “World Photo Day” so we know you’re celebrating!
You can even take your photos into real life (!!!!) by printing them out and creating an impromptu living room gallery. Invite friends over and get swanky with some wine/grape juice and cheese.
Take Your Photo Obsession Further
