Join Joseph "PhotoJoseph" Linaschke for an in-depth discussion in this video Light diffusion with parchment paper, part of The DIY Photographer.
- Hi, and welcome to the DIY Photographer.…I'm your host Joseph Linaschke.…In earlier tips we talked about a couple of things.…We talked about these binder clips…and how useful they can be…in a whole variety of photographic situations…and we also talked about these clamp lamps,…a very inexpensive way to bring…artificial lighting into your photographic world.…Today we're going to put these two things together…along with a third object, this thing right here,…simple baking parchment paper.…Now why baking paper?…Well for one, it's really inexpensive,…but two, baking paper is designed for high heat.…
On the box it said this can handle up to 420 degrees,…which means if I use this parchment paper…to diffuse my light I don't have to worry about…the paper getting set on fire by the hot lamps in here…so of course a very useful thing.…So what we're going to do is…use this paper to diffuse the light.…Now see here I've got this direct lightbulb…shining onto my subject, this little plastic…camera that I've got here, and that light…
That's the idea behind The Do-It-Yourself Photographer. 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.
