DIY Time

On October 8, 2010 by Simon Fleming

I’d forgotten how much I love the DIY side of photography, and these days it can be too easy to avoid going down that path when we are surrounded by technology & computers doing everything for you at the touch of a button, the click of a mouse. I needed to get some new sync cables to connect some wireless receivers to my flashes & I needed to get them sorted for the weekend…  was planning on buying some tomorrow & then gave myself a slap to the back of the head Gibbs style. I’ve already got all the bits I need in a box of ‘not sure what I’ll ever want this for but you just never know’. Thirty minutes later with the help of a pair of wire cutters, soldering iron and some heat shrink we’re good to go!

I don’t think a photographers bag is complete until there are some home made bits and pieces in it, held together with gaffers tape or whatever else was on hand at the time.
