In the world of photography, even the simplest accessories can cost a few days' salary. The answer? Don't buy it. Build it!
That's the idea behind The Do-It-Yourself Photographer. Every other week, photographer and educator Joseph Linaschke shows how you can fashion ordinary items-from plastic cups to clamps to parchment paper-into accessories that will improve lighting, stabilize your camera, and much more.
So roll up your sleeves and break out the gaffer's tape. Learn how to become a DIY photographer.
