If you’ve been keeping track at home, you know that I spent part of my weekend exploring the new Fujifilm Wonder Photo Shop that just opened in the flatiron district. It’s the first of its kind in North America, and is part retail store, part print center, and part creative workspace. You can play with Fujifilm cameras, take DIY classes, or easily print your own photographs. It’s essentially a photographer’s heaven!
While I was there I couldn’t resist making a few projects of my own. Lucky I had just come back from Budapest, so I had dozens and dozens of fabulous pictures to use.
I decided to print a few photographs in a square shape because I’m modern like that. You can either download the app, or just plug in your phone to the monitor. It’s important to note that the monitor will pull up all of your pictures, so make sure they’re all appropriate!
My photos loaded in seconds, and it was easy to navigate the system to crop, enhance, and print the pictures. The only hard part was choosing which photographs to print!
I think they turned out well, don’t you?
After I had printed my modern square photographs, Charles (my favorite Wonder Photo Shop employee – hi Charles!) showed me how to easily make a photo collage on the computer. You select how many pictures you want to include and the system generates a design. Then, you can drag the pictures around to create the perfect collage.
Again, I was using my fabulous Budapest pictures, so it would have been difficult to make the collage anything less than amazing!
Once you’re done, you can even change the background color or have another photograph be the background.
The Fujifilm Wonder Photo Shop has perfectly-sized picture frames for the collages, and they’ll even insert the print for you and clean the glass. This way you don’t end up having to redo the framing several times because you keep trapping random pieces of paper/lint/hair behind the glass (or is that just me?).
Wondering what the total cost was of my photo collage, frame and square prints? It was only a little more than $8! Crazy, right?
While I was at the store I played around with Fujifilm’s instax® camera.
This camera provides instant pictures, so you can capture moments with your friends and have something tangible to remember them by (“them” meaning the moments, hopefully you can easily remember your friends!).
The Fujifilm Wonder Photo Shop has fun frames and books that you can stick the pictures directly into. How cute would it be to bring the camera to a friend’s birthday party, take pictures of the celebration, and then hand them a keepsake book before the party even ends?!
(Coincidently I just celebrated a friend’s birthday this weekend. If only I had thought of this sooner! Sorry Kendall!).
After visiting the Fujifilm Wonder Photo Shop my apartment is looking better already.
And now I can’t wait to make more fun projects!
I can’t wait to see what you make! Send me pictures… of your pictures!
