10 FUN DIY LIGHTING PROJECTS TO SAVE YOU MONEY

Photography is often gratifying, but rarely lucrative. Being a professional or even amateur photographer can push you buy expensive equipment without ‘paying you back’ financially. Sometimes even the basic equipment you need for new projects can seem out of your budget. When this happens, you might be tempted to abandon those projects altogether.

Instead of giving up on your creative goals and projects, try making the equipment yourself first. This strategy may not work for everything, but it can be a great solution for accessories like lighting equipment.

So, if you enjoy DIY projects, like to save money, and are in need of some lighting equipment for your next shoot, take a look at these 10 awesome ideas tried and tested by photographers.
