Book Description

Sept. 15 2009
A photo, an idea, and simple crafting skills are all you need to transform your pictures into useful, fun, giftable art. With clear DIY instructions, Photojojo! by Amit Gupta and Kelly Jensen shows you how to turn your forgotten photos into ingenious photo projects.

Do you have lots of pics of friends and family you want to show off? Make a sleek, stylish photo display rail so you can change them up at a moment’s notice. Need something to play with? Make photo slider puzzles, Rubik’s cubes, and temporary tattoos. Or spruce up your pad with a photo chandelier or a giant wall mural you can print at home! All the projects use basic materials and are easy enough to whip up in an afternoon.

Once you’re armed with what you can do with all your images, check out Photojojo’s inspiring ideas to get you shooting photographs more creatively. Investigate the world from a canine perspective with the amazing doggie cam, or grab your friends and head out on a photo safari. Make a sneaky hidden jacket camera and turn string, a washer, and a screw into a monopod that fits in your pocket, MacGyver-style. Learn how to motivate yourself to take a photo every day with project 365, or get the little ones involved with Photojojo’s head-spinning photography method: because you + kid + centrifugal force = awesome. Yep, photography just became a whole lot more fun.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not incredibly inspiring. Dec 28 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Buy this book! Sept. 29 2009
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars 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!

5.0 out of 5 stars Give your photos some DIY love Sept. 23 2009
By ALICIA G KACHMAR - Published on Amazon.com
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?

5.0 out of 5 stars 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

5.0 out of 5 stars A cookbook for *doing* photography Sept. 22 2009
By Adam Varga - Published on Amazon.com
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.
