Photojojo Weekly Photo Challenge: Episodes 31-34

Instagram crush alert! @Paperboyo combines stunningly precise papercraft cut-outs with monuments and landmarks from all over the globe for amazing photographs that never cease to make us marvel (and occasionally chuckle too).

Thankfully, we don’t have to stare at our phones hoping for a new post. Rich McCor (the clever snapper behind @paperboyo) recently released a book of his fantastic photos and behind the scenes peeks at his process.

We still couldn’t get enough Rich in our lives, so we talked to him about his inspiration, his favorite gear and much more. Turns out the dude is just as delightful as his photos!

Photojojo Weekly Photo Challenge: Episodes 21-30

You love love, and you love it big time. So, go BIG this Valentine’s Day.

Print up a 3 foot x 4 foot Engineer Print to show your love BIG time.

Read along to see three fun ways to spread the love to friends, crushes and soulmates using photos!

 

1. Mailbox Surprise

gifts
Just fold up your Engineer Print, pop it in an envelope and mail it to your long-distance love.

Parabo Press’s EPs (as the cool kids call ‘em) are printed on extra thin paper, perfect for easy hanging and mailing too!

Yeah, your print will get creases in it, but we just love the idea of your giftee unfolding and unfolding and unfolding to reveal the biggest Valentine they’ve ever received.

 

2. Pin the Heart on the Babe

gifts
We may have spent a bit extra time on this part of the photoshoot in the Photojojo Office … this game is serious fun! Everyone gave it a go.

Print up a photo of your favorite heartthrob, cut out some hearts, procure a blindfold, give the first contestant a good spin, and watch them just try to find their way to that cutie’s heart.

It’s the perfect pastime for a Galentine’s Party or a cozy night in – just you, mood music, a box of chocolates and an EP of Michael B. Jordan.

 

3. Surprise! I love you!

gifts
Engineer Prints (available in color and B&W) are the perfect width to tape in your
standard door.

Tape your face looking into a room with an inward opening door to give your favorite someone a BIG surprise.

Just make sure your intended recipient is in the room when you stick up that print.

They’re so sticky in fact, that they can stick to almost anything.

Anything you say?

There are a few options out there when it comes to tracking your Instagram info: likes, follows, comments … you know the drill.

Our pal, Luke Beard (uh. great name, or greatest name?), wasn’t real thrilled with any of them, so he created his own! Get it, Luke.

StatShot not only gives you daily IG data, but does so in an uncluttered, non-intrusive way. It’s clean, straight to the point and free to use if you’ve got less than 5k followers. We love free.

Sign up by linking your IG account here and start getting your daily dose of IG info. It’s a beautiful way to figure out what people are diggin’ about your feed, which hashtags are working out, and quantitatively measure your internet love.

Our love for you, however, could never be contained within data. <3
