Home Made Tripod


I've shared this nifty little trick before - a home made tripod. It sounds impossible, but actually it's really practical and much easier than lugging the real thing around with you if it's not needed! Check out this articlefor more information on how to create it!

Home Made Reflector


Reflectors can be pretty expensive from time to time. I've been lucky to pick up a couple cheaply on Ebay and they serve the purpose but if you really want to save, then why not try making your own? This article shows you how with just three materials and the video below also provides further guidance - check it out here. The below video is also really useful for this as well..



Paper Lens Hood


Lens hoods are really useful, but I tend to use mine more of a protector for my lens than anything else. So if you're looking at  buying one and you're not sure where to look then why not try making one yourself first? This website allows you to find your camera make, and print off your own! It doesn't get much more useful than that...


Flash Diffuser


Camera shops will charge you a fair bit for a bit of plastic that will diffuse your flash. That's a great quick, easy solution. However if you've got the time to make something for yourself, it's quick and easy - and free! Cartons - transluscent - work well for this occasion. Simply slice the bottom off of a milk carton and attach the base to the flash gun. Sellotape is helpful here. If you want it more diffused, then just add a few more layers. It doesn't look that attractive - but it serves a purpose!

If you have any great DIY Photography tools that you'd love to share then why not drop a link or comment at the bottom of this article for the next Artists Toolbox Week! :w00t:

I have tried "leaning" my camera on a tiny tri-pod on my chest but that does NOT work! Have used the small, portable tri-pod on trash cans, which have had some success. The one you showed seems like it work well!
