Lights, camera, Ikea hack! Romain turns the Ivar side unit into rails for the cam. "A few days ago, I found out that the Ivar "wooden ladder" was perfect to use it as rails for my cinema dolly! I can now make some nice sequence shots with this 18€ accessory from Ikea."

Dan Saelinger Photography » Build Your Own Dolly

by sbrothier & 1 other, 1 comment (via)
As mentioned on numerous posts, like every other photographer these days I’m making the leap into video. While equipment is relatively affordable things can quickly add up especially when you start getting into the numerous needed accessories. I knew a dolly was going to be a necessary purchase pretty early on and I had been eyeing the great kit offered at Microdolly, but at around 2000.00 it was a bit more than I wanted invest this early on.



Studio Photography - The Best Softbox Ever |

by sbrothier
This is a DIY project I have had in mind for a while now. When I purchased my studio flash heads, they came with a couple of small softboxes. Although I prefer to use translucent umbrellas whenever I can (small, light, easy to transport), there are times when a softbox is a better solution. While I could use the studio head softboxes in some circumstances with my small strobes, there was no way of effectively holding the flash in place without a lot of jerry rigging. To this end, I wanted to design a softbox that would be light, reasonably strong and durable, adaptable (double diffuser, grid attachment, barn doors etc.) at a later date and have a quick and easy way to mount the flash.

Polaroid Manipulation

by sbrothier
If you happen to have an old SX-70 camera lying around, you're in luck. SX-70 cameras can take Polaroid 600 film with an easy modification. Folding SX-70 cameras are superior to 600 cameras as they have optional neutral density filters, glass lenses and a starting focal length of 10.4 inches. The modification to use 600 film with SX-70 cameras is not a modification to the camera, but to the film cartridge and is simple to do.

DIY Square Ring Flash (with build instructions) sur Flickr : partage de photos !

by sbrothier
Having seen a lot of ring flash pictures popping up all over Flickr just recently, I decided to have a go at making one myself. I had a look through a couple of dozen designs for doing this and they all seemed to have one thing in common, they were all based on a ring. Nothing wrong with that of course, it is a ‘ring’ flash when all said and done, but after thinking about the problem for a while I decided to follow the advice of Huey Lewis, after all, it is ‘hip to be square’.

Why? Because regular enclosures are boring. Because Moleskine notebooks are great looking. And of course, the usual answer: why not?

Steampunk Keyboard Mod

by sbrothier & 1 other
My goal with this project was to build a retro keyboard that was fully functional and of a sufficient quality that it could be used everyday by a touch typist. In order to achieve this I chose a high quality (though widely available) keyboard as my starting point. This is an IBM Model M "Clicky" keyboard. They were made starting in the mid 1980's and a version is still manufactured today. This particular keyboard was made in 1989 and shipped with and IBM PowerStation 530, a UNIX box the size of a kegerator.
