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.
“PhotoJoseph” Linaschke is a Photographic Storyteller, Educator, and runs the website PhotoApps.Expert (formerly ApertureExpert). He’s been shooting since the age of seven, and teaching and presenting on stage to audiences around the globe for over 20 years. Following an eight-year tenure at Apple as the lead presenter, producer and photographer for the Professional Applications Division, he stepped out on his own in 2009 to pursue all things photography.
