Photojojo’s Guide to Kodachrome
feature-kodachrome

“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.

Glow Doodle: Paint with Light in Real Time!
feature-glowdoodle2

“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?
Noodles? Poodles? Oodles of strudels?!
Gotta draw something: resistance is futile.

Glow Doodle: Paint with Light in Real Time!

p.s. Browse through the Glow Doodle favorites set to see the dreamy, arty, surreal and downright creepy images other folks have made.

Invisible ink, spy cameras, secret passageways… if it’s incognito, we love it.

Our yen for all things surreptitious and sneaky has inspired us to craft this clansdestine camera case out of a hollowed-out book.

It’s highly useful for tricking enemy spies into believing you are a harmless bookworm instead of the undercover photo ninja that you are.

Pull your fedora down, tighten your trenchcoat, and let’s get secretive.

Remember Everything With Your Camera and Evernote
feature-evernote

Study the following phrases carefully:

  • Absent-….ed professor
  • One-track ….
  • Get your …. out of the gutter

If any words appear to be missing, you may have lost your mind.

The good news is, your trusty camera can keep your mind from wandering off!

Snap a picture of anything you want to remember and drop the photo into Evernote.

This clever little app turns your picture into a note (it can even read text in your photo) and creates a collection of little reminders.

Use tags to search for related notes, or add them to a to-do list. You can access the database from your smartphone, desktop, or the web, so it’s available wherever you go.

Take snapshots of places you want to explore, or ideas scribbled on napkins, and pretty soon you’ll remember everything!

Your mind may still wander, but at least you’ll know where it was.

Evernote: Use Your Camera to Remember Everything
Thanks to reader to Lindsay Leung for the tip!

p.s. Evernote works with your scanner too! (And screenshots, and your webcam, and Eye-Fi cards…) Check out their blog for ideas and tips on using the app.
