Our friend Margo (dancin’ on the right there) has a real gift for making gifs.
She can crank out a masterful gif, in a jiff.

Uniquely, photos taken with the Kodak No. 1 were printed in charming 2.5″ sepia circles.
The National Media Museum just released a set of Kodak No. 1 photos and it turns out day-to-day life in the 1890′s was pretty cool. Boat rides, beach trips, and hats galore!
They inspired us to give our photos that Kodak No. 1 look. So, we cooked up this simple recipe:
It’s that easy! Give your photos that great 1888 look using just a couple of apps… Or invest in headwear (those folks seriously loved their hats).

We’re not sure what it is about autumn that makes us feel downright snap happy!
Maybe boots and sweaters just make us feel more poetic than flip-flops.
We know how quickly autumn’s colors fade, and we don’t want you and your lens to miss a minute of it.
So we’ve scoured Instagram for the season’s best hashtags to inspire you to trade in your lemonade for a latte, then get out there and capture fall in all it’s glory.

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.
