Two New Impossible Project Instant Films! PX 600 Silver Shade & PX 70 Color Shade

Harvest moons, nippy weather, technicolor leaves.

*Sigh* This is what fills us with the fuzzy nostalgia of turkey days of autumns past.

But that’s not the only thing this time of year makes us miss. It was almost exactly a year ago that the last Polaroid films expired.

Some might call it a miracle then that only one year later The Impossible Project has developed two *new* ground-breaking instant films.

And Photojojo’s the first and only shop to bring them to you! Presenting the PX 600 Silver Shade and PX 70 Color Shade Films.

PX 600 Silver Shade

Stable and consistent, this version is a step up from the First Flush of Silver Shade.

This sepia-toned monochrome film delivers dreamy, warm-toned prints.

And, you’re in luck! This gorgeous film is optimized to be used with the most popular Polaroid cameras – the 600 series.

PX 70 Color Shade

The Impossible Project’s first instant color film!

No one thought it could be done – but Impossible gathered up their best German chemists and did it!

This beauty has a soft, desaturated look similar to expired Time Zero film and is optimized for SX-70 Polaroid cameras.

Jean Francois Rauzier’s Hyper-Detailed Photos, Creating a Dreamworld with Thousands of Shots

A game!: Inception or Not Inception?

Mad man constructs faux reality by assembling deceivingly realistic structures that are maze-like when observed too closely.

Surprisingly, not Inception! Jean Francois Rauzier’s Hyperphotos are photographic reconstructions of real places often created from between 600-3,400 individual photos.

A bit like Hockney, Jean photographs a single place for one to two hours. He uses a telephoto lens to collect close-up shots of his scene.

The compilation is where his vision or dream, if you will, takes over and the thousands of photos translate into Babylones, Voyages Extraordinaries, and Cités Idéales. We can take a gander at what most of these French titles mean!

Looking at a single image will have you lost in its architecture for hours! (Kind of hoping we’ll find a Leo or Juno if we stare long enough.)

Try your own dreamworld reconstruction, but don’t forget to set your kick and spin your totem and all that good stuff (’cause we hear those dreamworlds get craaaaazy)!

How To Make Your Cell Phone Look Like Your Favorite Camera!

Extra photos for bloggers: 1, 2, 3

Photographers. We’re a funny bunch.

If there’s one thing we love (besides taking pictures), it’s getting all photo-geeky with our friends, discussing everything from apertures to Zeiss lenses.

Unfortunately, it’s not easy to carry all our awesome cameras with us for bragging rights 100% of the time.

Most days, we’re only armed with our cell phones to take pictures, and that doesn’t make us feel as cool as we know we truly are.

Fortunately, our pal Joey found a fun solution!

With his help, we’re going to show you how you can dress up your cell phone so you’ll never be caught without your favorite camera ever again!

How to: Make Your Cell Phone Look Like Your Favorite Camera!


The Camera USB Drive & The Camera Strap Buddy

With all of the fun photo gizmos and gadgets you’ve collected, you might find yourself toting around a *bit* more with you on your daily outings.

Here are two new goodies that will help you carry your photo load.

One is designed to get your photos and files from point A to B, while the other revolutionizes the way you wear your camera!

Camera USB Drive

Our desk is a gallery of only the most unique and charming desk items (sculptural stapler from MOMA ftw!).

And now, we have a USB drive that will fit right in: The Camera USB Drive!

It’s a finely detailed mini camera replica that carries 4GB of photos and files in camera fashion style.

Camera Strap Buddy

This little buddy transforms the way we wear our camera into a most comfy sling style.

It attaches one end of our camera strap to the bottom of our camera.

We can now non-awkwardly walk across the room without our camera using our stomach as a bounce house! Boo-ya.

Long Exposures + Facebook Albums = Gorgeously Layered Photos

We sign in, and within 10 minutes, we’ve seen photo albums of our our Art History professor’s gem collection and our crush’s trip to the Kennedy Space Center (swoon!).

Facebook hands us a magnifying glass, showing us see each others’ lives in an astoundingly close-up view.

Phillip Maisel got to thinking about that – about technology, photographs, and how memories are stored and shared.

He grabbed his digital camera, and setting it on a long exposure, took a photo of his computer screen while he clicked through a Facebook photo album.

The result? Gorgeously layered photographs that resemble double or triple exposures.

A day, a trip, or even a month’s worth of photos all relived in one photo! There’s something pretty magical there.

So, the next time you find yourself flipping through Facebook albums, see what happens when you set your camera in front of your screen! (’causewebetit’llbeamaaazing!)

Double Exposures: A DIY Project That Brings Friends Together With Photos!

Extra photos for bloggers: 1, 2, 3

We love hanging out with our friends, and we’ve had a great summer full of lunches in the park, guests from around the globe, and days off at the beach.

With summer winding down, we have a lot less beach days in our future, and no out-of-town guests scheduled to sleep on our couch.

…That’s a problem for us.

Naturally, we tried to fix the problem with photos.

Were we successful? Of course!

Our solution is a fun project that you can make with anyone you choose, whether they share a dorm room with you or live halfway across the world.

Use Photo Magic to Trick Your Eyes And Play Pranks With Friends

Extra photos for bloggers: 1, 2, 3

Last week when Jen of team Photojojo went to New York for a few days, we wanted her to know how much she was missed.

We thought long and hard about how we could prank her upon her return…

…Fake parking tickets on her car?
…Stapler in a Jell-O mold?
…Cover everything in post-its?

It was a hard decision, but in the end we knew the best way to prank her would be by using what we all love best: Photography!

What did we do? Read on to find out and try it yourself!
