Oh, it’s Photojojo! the book! Which is released today!  And why was it open to that particular page?

Hey look! That’s my name! My name, written inside a Kate Bingaman-Burt drawing, on a page of a freaking amazingly awesome diy photography book!!

And that’s a digital pinhole photo of me with the book, which is what I contributed! Based on the tutorial I did here on do stuff! a couple years ago, when they contacted me about contributing the how-to for the book I was crazy excited because photojojo has been one of my favorite blogs for quite some time!

As you can see, I had some camera-remote-fun today showing off the book, hah! But hey, dudes, enough about my contribution excitement – if I had no personal part in this book, I would still be way superduper excited about it! It’s so my dream photography book!

Filling its 192 pages are all different kinds of projects for using photos you’ve taken, ways to have fun with photography, and ways to hack your camera! I want to do pretty much every single project, seriously! Here are images of some of my favorites, for your viewing pleasure……

Some major craftiness going on in those pages! So if you don’t think of yourself as a photographer, that doesn’t mean this book isn’t for you – this is a fantastically rad book for any creative person with a digital camera!!

My tutorial, by the way, happens to be the very last one… Pete says that’s a good thing because the first and last are most memorable… I say, shrug, it’s my first book contribution ever, and I still can’t believe that I’m actually in such an insanely great book!!

And lastly, just for fun, since the pinhole photos in the book were taken by Amit+Kelly, here are some of my digital pinhole shots:
