Top light in home studio
I was searching for a solution to bring a large top light into my home studio, which has a normal room height and a relatively low ceiling. I discovered that using the inner diffuser of a 200x140cm reflector mounted on two C stands would do the trick. The C stands were also used to hold...
 
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.
 
Cable Relief – laptop
I already have cable relief for the camera and wanted to do something similar for the laptop.
 
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...
 
DIY Cable Relief
I wanted some extra protection for the tethering cable and found this old neck strap for a USB stick (I think). I glued it to a short USB cable that I have to use anyway since it has the right 90-degree angle. I need that so I can still use the L plate also in...
 
A tiny smoke machine
The Plan I have used an electric cigarette as a small smoke machine. My first version was bit and pieces glued together but that wasn’t very robust and broke. Now that I have a 3D printer I wanted to revisit this project and make it properly. Smokers can suck smoke to their lungs and blow...
 
Light Stand Holders
After selling some stuff and buying some that fit better to the selves I thought that I’ll add some holders for light stands. Now they stand in a nice row when not used. Those holders are from the garden section of the local hardware store. They are normally used for rakes. My home studio has...
 
DIY Charging Station
After a longer photo project wanted to do something different. I have wanted some kind of charging station to clear up the wire mess but my wall space is kind of limited. I have used tool cart for photo use and I thought I could hang it there. With this project I thought I also...
 
V-Flats
Since my home studio is in our living room I needed folding screens to cover all the mess that is there. I thought that maybe those folding screens could also act as v-flats. I used21x45mm wood to make the frames and stapled some cheap tablecloth vinyl to it. Backside is from 10mm thick black foamed plastic. It’s...
