We’ve seen, made and wrote about many cheap DIY projects. This time, Alex of I did a thing has come up with five hilarious, tongue-in-cheek “hacks” perfect for every cheapskate videographer or photographer. It doesn’t get cheaper than this, and all you need to do is raid your fridge. Or your neighbor’s home.
From time to time, we get to see DIY photography ideas that are so funny, yet so brilliant. Using a beer helmet as a speedlight holder is definitely one of them.

One day at a McDonald’s restaurant, Jevh Maravilla was sitting with his friend and noticed that there were no Asian in any of the ad posters. At the same time, he saw a blank wall and had a crazy idea: what if they put a photo of themselves up there? The idea soon became reality, and the guys managed to hang a professional-looking poster with them as the models. And the funny thing is – no one noticed anything unusual for almost two months.
Ina hilarious video, Jevh shares how they did it, from planning the shoot to hanging it on the McDonald’s wall. And I must say it’s some high-quality trolling.

The natural consequence of a wedding often seems to be divorce these days. And, as photographers, we have to adapt to the times. So, it makes sense for us to jump on these opportunities when we can. Like photographer Tom Byrd, professional divorce photographer.
All photographers have gone through awkward and unpleasant situations throughout their career. And I believe we all have some of the sentences we find especially annoying when we hear them from clients, friends or even family members.

Saw an ad for a “Styled (Wedding) Shoots Conference.” For those of you unfamiliar with the styled shoots, it’s where models play fake brides who fake marry models playing fake grooms at a fake wedding filled with fake guests and then cut a wedding cake at a fake styled reception while photographers who have paid to photograph the fake-ness happily snap away at the event and then post all the styled fakery in their portfolio as samples of “their work.”
The year is 2004, and Nikon has just announced their latest flagship 35mm SLR, the Nikon F6. Matt Granger, who I’m surprised wasn’t wearing a “That Nikon Guy” t-shirt for this, has managed to get his hands on one. So, he’s posted up a review. Strangely, despite the fact that he says it’s 2004, he’s managed to shoot the review in 4K.
