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

If you are looking for crafting ideas to do with your photos you may enjoy this book. I found it a bit cheesy and not at all what I expected after reading reviews. If you're a crafter, great, if a photographer, forget about it. Glad I only paid 41 cents plus postage for it.

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.

Was looking for a book to inspire ideas in photography but it's more inspirational on what you do can with photographs.
It's fun, nicely laid out, creative. Some good ideas on what you can do with your pictures if you haven't done more than store them on your hard drive.

Let's make it clear - this is NOT a how-to manual for a camera. It doesn't tell you how to set shutter speed or anything like that. It doesn't tell you the right angle to take sunsets from. What this primarily is about is fun ways to use the printed photos after you have printed them. Crafty ideas. Gift ideas.

For example, you can take a Rubik's cube and put pieces of a photo onto each square, customizing it. You can make a photo album out of an Altoid's tin. You can make your own snow globe. You can customize a laptop sleeve.

Sure, a small section at the back encourages you to bribe strangers with candy to get candid street photographs. It talks about tying a string to your camera, and stepping on the string, to help you steady it if your hands are shaky. It describes the fun of throwing your camera in the air with a long shutter speed so you get swirly photos of a turning landscape. But most of this is about the crafts you can do.

For many of that, that is awesome.

You could say that you could Google and find the same sort of crafty ideas, but sometimes there's something nice about sitting down with a book that's all organized for you and reading through it. It's also a nice book to bring to a meeting or get-together to pass around.

Also, I love the lighthearted tone of the book. Whoever wrote this has a great sense of humor.

Well recommended!
