Never underestimate the power of IKEA. I made variety of my photography equipment from their items like a 3m X 2m diffusion panel, backdrop stands, flash mounts, etc.

Fritz, I am very curious to see your diffuser panels. Could you share?

Watch IKEA start marketing products geared towards photography and film.

LOL... Full photography studio - $50

I bet someone could do it for under $100 if they were creative enough.

Wow, this is an amazing idea, the short film. I absolutely loved it. Also like 90% of the gear used for this was from IKEA :D.

Cool idea and a very creative solution!

Also, I laughed at the disclaimer at the end a bit more than I should have =)
