This book is full of great ideas that can help you display your photos around the house, take more interesting photos, and in general, have more fun with them.

So if you have a camera, or maybe a shoebox of old photos lying around: Buy this book today, and your life will be forever changed.

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!

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?

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

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.

This book is fun to read all by itself, and the crafts are simple and well-explained. The projects yield results that you will be happy to display. Refrigerator magnets, voodoo dolls, murals, calendars: there's something here for everyone. The whole book is presented in a lighthearted and engaging manner that made me want to do the projects right away. This will help you use some of those old photos languishing in your camera.

Taking photos is one thing, but doing stuff with them is another. This book is full of great ideas that can help you display your photos around the house, take more interesting photos, and in general, have more fun with them. From DIY snowglobes to home made fish eye lenses, this book is a hoot. After looking through it in a local book store, I bought a copy. It's really good.
