Get your kids into photography and they’ll never have money for drugs. Yes we all know photography’s bloody expensive so here’s a video about 10 simple DIY photography tips with items you can find around your household from Kai over at Digiralrev.
The last 2 Digitalrev videos have been filmed in the UK, which is where Kai comes from originally and this makes for an interesting change in scenery, but I for one find the videos made in Hong Kong to have a special appeal. Don’t know about you but I can’t wait for Kai to return to Hong Kong. I am however very curios which of the 2 countries he prefers the most, China or the UK.
Here’s an index of the different tricks covered and where in the video they’re discussed:
1: Tripod Sling (1:03). Use key rings to give your tripod a carrying strap.
2: Vasaline Soft Focus (2:17). Rub Vaseline on a sheet of glass for soft focus photos.
3: Tights Soft Filter (4:12). Tights over your lens can give your photos a different look.
4: String Pod (5:25). Use a piece of string to give your camera extra stability.
5: Corn Stabilizer (6:04). Make a simple bag to rest your camera on for stabilization.
6: Poo Roll Macro (7:08). A toilet paper roll can be used for reverse lens macro shots.
7: Strap Filter (7:55). Use your camera strap to modify how scenes are exposed.
8: Bokeh Guru Kit (8:22). Cut shapes into card stock to shoot with custom bokeh.
9: Pinhole Bodycap (8:40). A hole in a body cap turns it into a simple pinhole lens.
10: Beauty Dish (8:59). Turn a pie pan into a beauty dish.
