Cable Relief v3
New L-plate and new tethering cable release, now in version 3. I like this short adapter cable and long cable combination, where the shorter one is attached to the L-plate. The attachment is custom 3D-printed for this SmallRig L-plate and cable. If I happen to yank the cable, either the long or the short cable...

Flash Clock
The absolute requirement for this clock was that the time is automatically set. You just plug it into the power source, and it shows the correct time. The previous clock in that space had a 1-minute-per-month accuracy problem, and that was kind of a pain in the ass. I have wanted to test these small...
 
Frame for Grib Heads
I like to make DIY stuff for photography. Recently, I decided to create a custom frame for my DIY modifiers using 8mm and 12mm aluminum tubes and a 3D printed part (you can find the step file here). I was eager to see how it would perform in action, so I put it to the...
 
Prop Silencer
For a photo idea, I require a prop gun equipped with a silencer. Luckily, I have an airsoft pistol that appeared sufficiently realistic in photos. However, in order to complete the illusion, I needed to fabricate a silencer. I made it from a PVC pipe, 3D printed parts, a machine screw, and some glue.
 
Flash Cover
I found myself in need of a protective cap for one of my flashes. Rather than waiting for one to arrive from China, I decided to take matters into my own hands and design and 3D print one myself. Not only was it a quicker solution, but it also allowed me to customize the design...
 
Shortening studio stand
I was looking to take a photo from a longer distance and our bedroom door provides the perfect line of sight against the grey background. However, the height of my studio stand was an issue when getting through the doorway. While hand-held photography is an option, I wanted to use stand in this situation too....
 
DIY storage for (sun)glasses
I have a lot of sunglasses and glasses that I use as photography props, and it was difficult to find the ones I needed because they were all jumbled up in a box. So, I decided to make my own storage solution.

DIY Photography: Personalizing My Bags With Killer Zippers
 
Macro Keyboard
I wanted to test how Expresskeys EK-84 custom keyboard works as a photoshop macro keyboard. It was not as easy as I initially thought. I ended up writing some python, photoshop javascript, doing some woodworking and drawing a bunch of icons in Inkscape to get it where I wanted. All the code and files can...
 
Overhead pole
I wanted to have an overhead pole over the work table, where I can hang things like safety equipment and painted stuff. I also added a simple camera mount there so I can take photos and video from the top-down perspective. 3MF files for the 3D printed parts can be downloaded here. They are made...
 
Personalizing my bags
When one of my zipper pull broke, I thought, “well, that’s not a big deal. I will just add some paracord to replace it”. I like the saying from Mythbusters: “If it is worth doing, it is worth overdoing”, so just adding paracord was not an option. I wanted to personalize my pull and add...
 
Sword on the Wall
I have been longing for a long sword for a long time, just to display it on my wall. I will be using it as a prop in some photoshoots too. Cross-guard of the sword has two loops in it, so I thought I could use towel hooks to hang it on the wall. It...
 
Drawer
We got rid of the old bookshelf which was mainly made from chipboard, but there were some birch wood and drawer bottoms to save. As a summer project, I thought that I make a drawer for my current desk. I wanted to use salvaged material as much as possible. All 3D printed parts can be...
 
Cable Relief – laptop
I already have cable relief for the camera and wanted to do something similar for the laptop.
 
Freddy vs Jason
I first bought the Freddy Krueger glove to put it on the shelve. Then I thought that why not make a photo shoot out of it. To make an outfit complete, I needed to buy a couple of more things like the mask and the iconic shirt. My son promised to be Freddy, and I...
 
Cable Relief v2
I broke the remote control port from my D800 years ago. For D850, I wanted a cable relief to keep my ports intact. For the GFX-50s, I wanted something similar too. It has the battery compartment in a weird place, and the only L-plate I could find that allows easy battery change was Arca-Swiss Classic...

Remote on a Pole
I ripped off the legs of an old light stand, so it’s just a handheld pole with the light. I also want to use the camera remote control when holding the light. That way, I can operate my camera on a tripod when I don’t have an assistant. The STL file for the remote holder...
