[HKD] Light Stand Stablizer #strobist #DIYPhotography #DIY

Well.. another DIY from me!
So, I’ve came across these Cola bottle belt clip on the web (first time saw this was actually on the subway)
Been using these to clip a bottle on the camera bag for long time.
suddenly got this idea.

Prepare: Portable Lightstand Stabilizer #strobist #DIYPhotography

So, basically i took 3 of these clip, took the hook out and thread it with a cable velcro tie.

Usage: Portable Lightstand Stabilizer #strobist #DIYPhotography

[HKD] DIY – The UmbrellaDish! #strobist #DIYP

Well! For the Strobist out there.  We all know how bulky the Beauty-dish is. 
Especially for me who doesn’t even drive in Shanghai, China. Carrying the big Beauty-Dish is hard. (and people often thought I am a Satellite Technician)
So I’ve always tried to avoid using it.

The other day, I was walking around XingGuang (the Shanghai Camera Mall, Yes a WHOLE BUILDING selling photography related stuff!!)  

I came across a little rather useless thing, which is a reflector that mount in front of the camera lens, to act as a “Ring-flash” that’s selling for 20 Chinese Yuan (about 3USD??)
But suddenly this strike me, I can make use of this thing. and solve the beauty Dish problem.

So.. BEHOLD!!! the UmbrellaDish!!!
[DIY] Tata!!! UmbrellaDish!

TATA!
