Ever tried painting with light but got an amorphous blob instead of the heart you meant to draw? Us, too.
That’s why light stencils are so so so great!
Instead of free-hand drawing with an LED light, you’ll use a cardboard box with a shape inside of it to shoot super detailed light paintings.
You don’t even have to cut out a stencil!
Just print out an old photo or a silhouette and slide it into your homemade lightbox. Pop the flash a few times, and create surreal dreamscapes even Salvador Dali would be envious of.
What better way to take advantage of those daylight savings hours?
p.s. Make a light stencil photo, and share it with us on Twitter! We’ll spotlight 3 winners on the Photojojo Tumblr. Just 1) Follow us @photojojo and 2) Hashtag it #photojojodiy. We’ll pick winners Monday morning 11/26 PST!

The Holidays are quickly approaching, and it’s time to get crafty.
So what are you bringing to the table?
It may be all about the turkey, dressing and casseroles, but these handmade table place holders are sweeter than pumpkin pie.
This DIY tutorial incorporates some of our favorite things: photos (duh!), tiny pumpkins (yay!) and Thanksgiving (yum!).
They’ll make your dinner table look *awesome*, and they’ll show your loved ones how much they mean to you.
Now isn’t that what Thanksgiving is all about?
We’re teaming up with some of our very favorite shops on the web to help you, faithful readers, with your holiday shopping!
These folks have very good taste. So, we decided to take advantage of their expertise and asked them to pick out their faves from the Photojojo shop to share with you.
We’d have chosen ourselves, but that’d be like choosing your favorite from among your very own kids. That is to say… totally illegal. (right?)

In fact, most of these things are probably just lying around the house!
So follow along with our roundup as we accentuate the analogue and re-imagine the digital.

Mount this plastic lens right onto your camera body and start snapping away! Your photos will have that vignetted lo-fi charm for which Holgas are so well known. (Pssst: if your DSLR shoots video too, you’ve got a Holga home movie machine on your hands).
Go ahead, make some magic without having to lift a wand.
