The term “DIY,” or “do it yourself,”gets thrown around a lot—much like “homemade”does in the kitchen. But here’s the thing: If it came from an instant-mix box (just add water!), it’s not really homemade.
DIY photography is the same thing. True DIY requires some tools, ingenuity—and maybe a few Band-Aids. Building something from parts that were totally not intended for this purpose? Yeah, that’s DIY!
To satisfy that urge, we’ve created the new lynda.com series The DIY Photographer that shows you how you can fashion ordinary items—from plastic cups to hardware-store clamps to parchment paper—into accessories that will improve your lighting, stabilize your camera, and much more.
