Join Joseph "PhotoJoseph" Linaschke for an in-depth discussion in this video The many uses of binder clips, part of The DIY Photographer.
- Hi, and welcome to The DIY Photographer.…My names's Joseph Linaschke, and I am your host,…and I am here today to give you something that's…a little bit more of a tip than a DIY.…But this tip, as you'll see, will come in handy…in lots of other DIY things that you might be doing later.…So, the tip is simply these guys right here.…Binder clips.…They come in all different sized and a variety of these…in your camera bag can be incredibly handy.…Let's start with some really simple uses.…As you can see here, I'm using it to bind a cable together.…It's a pretty good size, good thick electrical cable…being held together with that.…
Here we have a tiny little USB cable,…also held together with a smaller clip.…So, really handy for things like that.…You can also use them to pull material…and hold it tight.…Let's say, for example, that you're shooting a…tabletop product or something on a tabletop,…and you want to pull that tablecloth really nice…and taught, keep all the wrinkles out.…You can use these clips to hold them tight…
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.
