That’s why we came up with this photo block puzzle. It’s a little like our Photo Blocks, but squarer and bigger and harder to solve, and with a bunch more photos.
It’s a set of blocks we’d proudly display on our coffee table any day of the week.

Snape. Malfoy. Hogwarts. Horcrux.
If none of those words make any sense to you, you’re not a Harry Potter fan.
The rest of you know that in the Wizarding World, people in photographs don’t stand still. They move, wave at you, wander out of the frame for a cup of tea…
In honor of the new Harry Potter movie (eeeeee! we can’t wait!) we’re teaching you how to make your own moving pictures.
It’s so easy, even Muggles can do it!
p.s. We just snatched up the much anticipated Eye-Fi PRO Wireless Memory Card for the Photojojo Shop. Hooray for RAW uploads!
After being separated from his owners, Bobbie the Wonder Dog walked 2,800 miles to get back home to them.
Cameras don’t do that.
If you lose your camera in some far-flung locale, it’ll need help from a good-hearted stranger to find its way home again.
It’s nice to depend on the kindness of strangers, but giving them a mailing address helps too.
p.s. Are you following us on twitter? If not, you didn’t hear about this *charming* stop-motion video, the new most popular camera (you’ll be surprised), or get this iPhone photo tip. The cool kids follow @photojojo.

It’s road trip time! We’ve got some shiny new tips to add to our Road Trip Photography Guide:
Have a peek at our Original Road Trip Photography Guide, then get out on the open road!
Forget photosynthesis. Leaves are for photo-projects-thesis!
Grab a photo and a leaf, and in few simple steps you can turn everyday foliage into a unique silhouette portrait of someone you love.
Simple and elegant, leaf silhouettes look great in a frame or on a book or a card.
So, as Biff would say, “make like a tree and get to work on a silhouette leaf portrait!”
What shall we do with a broken camera
Fill it with dirt and put a plant in it
Click the big link to see how to do it
p.s. If you didn’t click that 1st link, you gotta see it. It’s like Michael Scott singing sea shanties. Plus it’s from a show called “Hootenanny!”
p.p.s. Hey U.S. peoples, our guide to photographing fireworks may come in handy this weekend!

And now even photographs are joining in the smallness, thanks to the magic of biaxially oriented thermoplastic polystyrene (that’s Shrinky Dinks to you).
You can print photos on plastic using your inkjet printer, and shrink them down small enough to make into necklaces, fridge magnets, earrings, or practically anything you can think of.
See? Just like that, the world is your bivalve mollusc of the family Ostreidae! *
“Life” wouldn’t have been the same without it. “National Geographic” would have been a washed-out mess.
Heck, they even named a state park after the stuff.
It’s Kodachrome. And it’s been discontinued.
So enjoy it while it lasts! Shoot just one roll of Kodachrome so you can say you used the greatest film of the 20th Century.
We know where to find it, we know what’s so great about it, and we’re gonna tell you, ’cause we want you to feel like all the world’s a sunny day.
Convert a cut of corduroy into a cuff for your cup, and keep your coffee calientÃ©!
Complete with a clever cutout, your cuff can show off captchas of your cute kids, curvaceous cutie, or capricious canine.
Carry your cuff to the cafe, and counter the calamity of cold coffee!
Make Sure Nobody Steals Your Joe with a Photo Coffee Cuff
p.s. Sorry about all that- sometimes we’re prone to C-sickness.
p.p.s. The picture-frame coffee cozy was originally designed as a Father’s Day gift, but we figured the ladies would want to get in on it too. Why should dads have all the fun?

“Photograph” literally means “light drawing”, and that’s never been clearer than with our new favorite boredom-buster, Glow Doodle.
It lets you take long exposures so you can paint with light in real time using your webcam.
Try different lights for different effects: write your name with with a mini-flashlight, fire your camera’s flash, or play with the metamorphic effect of moving while the webcam is exposing.
If you’ve never played with lightpainting before, this is an easy way to try it without setting up the tripod.
And now, what to doodle?
