Format: Paperback
For those not familiar with the Photojojo website, it is a site which features great photo projects, unique photo equipment, and fun DIY ideas, and is written in a witty, approachable manner. The book is a compilation of the best projects, and I can't wait to try them all out, especially the "puppy cam" tripod mount for your dog, so your best friend can get in on the photography action (featured on the cover, modeled by the author's pup, Molly). It does not matter whether or not you are a complete photo novice or a seasoned photographer, there is lots in this book for every level of experience. Aside from project ideas, there are great suggestions on how to make your own photography accessories, such as a water bottle tripod, or a film can flash diffuser. On top of all that, it is an incredibly entertaining read - worth it just for the writing alone.

I found a lot of these projects to be too crafty for my liking. Great for those age 8-14 or an untainted creativity. I'm probably going to give it away as a gift to my younger niece.

Couldn't be happier! Sept. 30 2009
By Sara - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I've been a subscriber to the Photojojo e-mails, so when I saw this book, I knew I had to buy it. The projects are fun, but my favorite part was the second half of the book. Anything that can inspire me to go out and take more pictures (sometimes I do get in lulls!) is definitely worth 5 stars to me!!!

I read it cover to cover in one night. Once I was done, I immediately came back to Amazon to purchase two more copies for my other photog friends! Get it - you won't regret it!

Give your photos some DIY love Sept. 23 2009
By ALICIA G KACHMAR - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Photos are for looking at? They're good for more than just looking at! In Photojojo!: insanely great photo projects and DIY ideas, you'll learn how to get really creative with those stacks of photos and/or digital copies you have been "meaning to do something with." Why stick to regular old frames when you can make a magnetic photo chain or a fork photo stand! Camera gurus can find a nice assortment of camera projects, including making a flash diffuser or fish-eye lens. All projects and tutorials are clearly outlined, visually pleasing and won't have you running around searching for obscure "ingredients." Speaking of ingredients, did you know there is such a thing as edible icing made from your very own photographs?

Photojojo wakes your creative force within you Oct. 8 2009
By Enche Tjin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
If you have thousands of pictures in your harddrive and don't know what to do with it, Photojojo creative ideas will come to the rescue. Part one of the book provides you with creative juices such as making your own photo mosaic, wall mural, book, creative frame, photo cupcake, personalized laptop sleeve and so many more.
Part two will provide you with a more creative ways to take photos that surely make your photos stand out among your friends. Some of the ideas / tutorial are doggie cam, painting with light, photo projects, street photography and so many more.

Some ideas are a bit complex to make, especially if you are not into DIY (Do It yourself), but Photojojo describes it very clearly including tips where to get the ingredients. In the creative photo taking section, all you need is a regular compact camera or entry level DSLR cameras.

Selling at less $15, this book is surprisingly very well made. It is full color book with thick art paper. The jacket is very well made and durable as well. Photojojo also makes a great gift for your friends or family who love photography

A cookbook for *doing* photography Sept. 22 2009
By Adam Varga - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This book is not a technical manual, nor is it a a treatise on the theory and practice of photography. Its fun and accessible cookbook for doing photography related stuff. The Photojojo Book is filled with recipes for:
- creating cool art (ie. Making photo chandeliers, page 99)
- having cool experiences (ie. How to photograph strangers... by bribing them with candy, page 133)
- building cool photography tools (ie. How to make a string monopod, page 167)

Flipping through these pages will get you inspired and buzzing with ideas... but the real magic happens when you *do* the projects listed within.
