We all said it… “I like digital photography, because then I just print out the photos I want.” And then we all did the same thing… Stopped printing photos entirely!
We miss ‘em.
That’s why we were so excited when we heard about Piccolo, an automatic photo printing service.
Once a month they print out your best shots from Insagram and Facebook, then drop them right off into your mailbox.
Just like that, prints are back!
You can even subscribe a friend (or frenemy) to receive an analogue update on your life every 30 days. They’ll love (hate) that!
Sign-up is simple. Then just keep doing what you’re doing – taking great shots and sharing them on the web! Piccolo will do the rest.
But wait! There’s more… use the coupon code photojojo3 for $3 off you first month. Thanks for the hook up, Piccolo!

If romantic comedies have taught us anything it’s that getting a beautiful bouquet of flowers is pretty darn special.
Flowers brighten up your day, but they tend to do that one pesky little thing — dying once they’re cut.
Making flowers out of photographs is a fun and cheeky way of telling that special someone you are smitten.
Plus, these flowers will go on living as mini photographic reminders of beautiful things that have happened in your life.
Learn how to make a super fun and simple bouquet of photo flowers to cheer up your living space, a loved one, or a stranger on the street. (Because we’d all like to feel like we’re in a romantic comedy once in a while.)
Are you ready to come along on a fantastic voyage? No time travel to throwback music videos required.
We were thinking a voyage to the hardware store to gather building supplies for the coolest tutorial yet — a DIY slide light.
It’s a minimalist light box that can display pictures, and it sure looks good doing it. Whether you shoot film, digital, or even Instagram (remember this tutorial?) - the slide party is open invite!
Think of this project as a way to create a mini gallery, with which to show off and rotate tiny versions of your photography.
To start you’ll only need one more power tool than your average tool-free craft project. Totally coolio, huh?
The kittens of the world are onto us. They seem to have learned to cut the cute stuff as soon as we get our camera phones out.
Well, we can finally outsmart those smartycats thanks to the 90° periscoping Smartphone Spy Lens! Hold your phone in texting position, all the while snapping pix of the cuteness.
Its high quality glass lens allows you to shoot at a less conspicuous angle without losing photo quality. You can position it in any direction while still looking at your screen for framing and focus.
Shoot more natural candids of your cute but camera-shy pets, pals and kiddos.

When it comes to movies, editing is kind of a big deal.
Without it, we wouldn’t have twist endings. (Looking at you, M. Night.) We wouldn’t have out-of-order movies to entertain our brains (Marty McFly 4ever). We wouldn’t even have beginnings, middles, and ends!
Frankly, movies would be pretty weird and probably not very good at all without editing.
Thanks to Instagram’s 4.1 update, you can now upload videos to Instagram, meaning a whole new world of video editing has opened up!
Sound, filters, transitions, sequencing — there is so much you can do to an Instagram video before uploading it. And awesomely, you can do it all on your phone.
Consider this guide an editing workshop that’ll turn your Instagram videos into cinematic artworks served 15 seconds at a time.
In Your Wallet Just Makes Cents
Your phone can’t stand the flavor of 5 Hour Energy. So for its midday pick-me-up, you’ve got to plug it in. Now where’d you leave that USB cord…?
Check your wallet! If you’ve put a ChargeCard in there, the search is over.
The ChargeCard is a USB charging connector that works with any iPhone/Android/other camera phone, is made of durable plastic, and is the same size as your library card.
Think of is at your phone’s version of that pillow you keep under your desk. Always there for you when you need to recharge.

When was the last time you got to snuggle a wolf puppy at work?
Never? Us neither. Sharon Montrose, on the other hand, can raise her hand to that one (and we’re green with jelly).
Sharon’s the photographer behind The Animal Print Shop. You might’ve spotted her portraits of wide-eyed baby giraffes, raccoons looking smug, and baby bears being baby bears.
We asked about how she discovered her awesome talent for photographing animal personality and what working commercially is all about.
While wolf pups might not be next up on your model list, you’ll get inspired to sit your pet down for a session!
p.s. We’re hiring for an amazing opening at Photojojo. We’re looking to re-invent what/how/where we publish online, and we’re seeking one amazing somebody to lead the charge as Editorial & Community Lead.
Moses Hacmon came up with one of the best photographic riddles we’ve ever heard.
How do you make a photogram of water if it’s clear? Light would just pass through it!
Moses spent years studying water and developed a photographic process that let him photograph the best part about water: its movement.
By working with a liquid film made up of nanoparticles, Moses is able to capture a moment in water’s movement. He layers this film over paper, and once water runs over it, the nanoparticles are absorbed into the paper, creating a negative image of the water’s flow.
The final image is a captivating still of the water’s twists and turns, overlaps, and shapes as it flows. You might even say you can see faces.
