Lights. Smartphone. Action!

With just the right accessories, you and your phone can make movie magic.

Might we suggest a dolly that slides, lenses for a new perspective and a constant light to really shine.

Don’t just rely on your hands or zoom to pan your cam. The Table Dolly glides smooth as silk on its four wheels and holds tight to any phone.

Change up your view with the Phone Lens Series. The wide angle and fisheye more than make up for your phone’s auto crop in video mode. The telephoto and macro get you stunning close ups.

For pro-level lighting use the Pocket Spotlight on or off of your phone. Get constant even light right where you want it.

Sure, there are apps to fake double exposures and you can spend hours in photoshop or a darkroom (remember those?) creating ‘em.

But, we’re here to share two ways to make double exposures as you shoot, using reflective little Color Lens and Flash Filters and the magical Instax 90 Instant Camera.

Pano Selfie Is The New Selfie

Extra photos for bloggers: 1, 2, 3

You’ve pretty much mastered the selfie … impeccable arm extension, flawless duck face, precision head tilt.

All that perfection can get boring.

It’s time to make the switch to Pano Selfies.

Give your selfies some edge with distorted perspective, glitchy stitching and guaranteed laughs from all who see ‘em.

It’s easy!

1. Put your camera into Panoramic mode or fire up any auto-stitching pano app.

2. Point your camera at your face and start the pano. It can be tricky since you have to use the back-facing camera, but practice makes perfect (or a bit easier).

3. Move you camera from one side of your face to the other. Use your whole arm, don’t just tilt the phone. Add wiggles, bumps, move the camera closer/farther from your face or change your expression as the phone passes by, for max silliness.

4. Share! Throw your masterpiece onto the web with #panoselfie.

5. Check Out Others’ Pano Selfies and Have a Chuckle
