As photographers, we plan and plan for big shoots.
But, we all have those days. The ones where that black cat that crossed our path, or we accidentally walked under a ladder.
Despite our best efforts, things can go wrong from time to time.
We’ll show you how to ward off those photoshoot nightmares. Our tips will prevent scary photo scenarios like garlic chases vampires away!
It’s the time of year to get tiny!
Candybars are getting fun-sized, and soon the streets will be flooded with three-foot tall firemen and ballerinas.
That’s why we’ve hunted down the smallest camera in town, The Kindred Camera Charm!
This li’l replicamera sits on a post that’ll fit into any standard audio jack (just like the one you’ve got on your phone/computer/walkman).
Your electronics can finally get in on this tiny trend, and show their camera pride with the help of this little charmer.

Normally, you don’t want your pixels to be seen.
You like the pristine, fine-grain look. But what if you went to the other extreme and really let your pixels show?
Vic Nguyen is taking commissions for turning your photos into awesome pixel portraits! His vixels, as they are called, are a little reminiscent of 8-bit Twitter avatars, but turned up a few degrees with way more detail.
Mustaches, beards, dimples, even your haircut are turned into exact pixel replicas.
So the next time someone tells you your pixels are showing, it’ll be a compliment!
p.s. Hey, Hot Shot! has a photo competition with $15,000 in prizes and some pretty amazing exposure up for grabs. Deadline is 11/14, so get those hot shots in!
Just when you thought it was safe to turn away, those empty film rolls are back. Back from the dead!
You can put your shotgun away, though: these Recycled Film Roll Magnets don’t want to eat your brains, they want to hang your prints!
Handmade right here in America, these upcycled empty film canisters conceal powerful neodymium magnets that’ll stick with determination. Put those prints up with pride, you green genius, you.

Aaah Fall, how we’ve missed you!
The cooler air, colorful leaves, and pumpkin-spiced
Yup! That’s right.
This tutorial will show you how to turn your photographs into tasty candied treats in any flavor you like for Halloween or for general eating pleasure.
In under an hour, your images will taste as good as they look.
Now isn’t that sweet?!
The reflector is one of our favorite tools; simple, easy to use, and *shiny*.
This DIY has those same great features, with added sparkle!
We’re going to show you how to make your own disco-ball-esque reflector using mirrors. You can use this DIY reflector to make a cool grid of light to shine on your subjects or to ward off vampires.
If you <3 shiny things as much as we do, then you’ll love this DIY that will turn your plain old silver and white reflectors green with envy.
If you could make your own photo hack, what would it be? Personally, we’d figure out a way to make CatPaint real life.
Over a hundred developers dreamed even bigger at Photo Hack Day Berlin last week!
With judges from Facebook, Getty Images, and EyeEm and participants like the Loopcam & InstaCRT team, competition was fierce and yielded some amazing apps that we actually wish we had on our phone right now.
These were the top three winners!
1.Helmut: The fastest scanner in the world! A simple box in which you place a film negative. The accompanying app shoots a photo of the film & inverts it into a positive image. We watched them scan a frame in under 5 seconds.
EXTRA COOL THING! We helped celebrate with an online photo challenge with EyeEm. See the winners’ photos, which were actually shown at Photo Hack Day!

Regular tripods are great, but what if you had one that would charge your phone and bend any way you wanted?
Meet the Bobine, a super flexible phone charging cable that can be bent into any shape for use as a tripod! Even better, it’s available in Android and iPhone versions.
Coil it up and tuck it into your bag: any time your phone needs some power or you just want to get a great self-portrait, the Bobine’s there!

Last week, 180,000 photo fans from all over the world came together in Cologne, Germany for Photokina.
What’s a Photokina? It’s Disneyland for photo nerds!
It’s the world’s biggest photo conference that comes around only every two years. Along with the conference came camera announcements.
And with it, a flood of tech specs.
