Turn a Book Into a Top-Secret Camera Case
feature-bookcase
Extra photos for bloggers: 1, 2

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.

Thanks to Photojojo (and designer Irina Blok), you may now enjoy the comforting presence of Adobe Photoshop even when your computer’s off!

Introducing The Photoshop Photo Frame — a nifty little design piece that’ll surely stop your Photo-shopping heart in its tracks.

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.

Make Your Camera Theft-Proof: Harness the Power of Ugly!
feature-uglified

Jimmie went to a bad part of Rio. Jimmie’s nice shiny camera got stolen.

Jimmie uglified his next camera. 4000 photos later, Jimmie still has his camera.

The moral: an ugly camera attracts less attention when you’re shooting in a rough area.

How to uglify your camera:

  • Cover the shiny surface with artist’s tape or black photo tape, which come off without leaving residue on your camera.
  • Color the tape with black and/or brown markers to make it look dirty.
  • Use pieces of duct tape to make the camera look barely held together (layer the duct tape over artist’s tape to avoid sticky residue).

Using your ugly camera:

  • Don’t carry a nice camera bag. Use a nondescript bag or a diaper bag instead.
  • Turn off the LCD screen (or cover it up) and hold the camera to your eye instead. If thieves think you have a film camera, they won’t want it. Sad but true.

Water stains. Ceiling tiles. All those pencils you stuck up there.

So many evils can mar your ceiling. But take heart, photo peeps!

Your ceiling’s not the boss of you.

Cover that water damage with a colorful mural, or slap a collage of fluffy clouds over those grimy ceiling tiles.

All ya need to make it happen are some photo Post-its and a stepstool.

Yessir, everything’s looking up!

Project 1976: Making a Photo History of the Year You Were Born
feature-1976

Sveinn Birkir has been collecting images from 1976 to make a visual anthology of the year he was born.

Freaking rad!

Wanna make your own Project 1976? Search Flickr or Google Image Search for your birth year and see what comes up.

Look for events that happened and things that came out that year (cars, products, albums, movies). Who was on the cover of Time or Rolling Stone? Who died or was born that year?

Sprinkle in some family photos and show off your time capsule! Start a photoblog, or print the photos and stick ‘em on the wall.

Better yet, do this for a pal (or your kid, if you’ve got one of those) and make it into a book for their birthday. Better even than cupcakes, amigo.

p.s. We really wish our name was Sveinn.
