So, here's the problem with shopping for photographers: they tend to have really expensive taste. I mean, you can't really get Bob that 70-200mm f/2.8 lens when the office gift exchange program has a $20 limit. (Why is Bob asking for that, anyway? Come on, Bob. This is supposed to be casual.) Here are 10 fun and cheap DIY photography gift ideas.
Coming to you from the Cooperative of Photography, this great video will give you 10 DIY ideas for fun photography gifts and instructions on how to create them. As you probably know, being a photographer generally means we have eyes for really expensive gear, which in turn tends to make us royal pains in the you know what to shop for. And on the other hand, if you're the one giving the gifts, your non-photographer friends and family probably aren't going to appreciate that new monolight you got them, no matter what the t.5 duration is. Luckily, we're a creative bunch, and with a little ingenuity and the use of our photography skills, we can make some really cool gifts, as this fun video shows. So, channel your inner arts and crafts genius and get to work. Happy Holidays!
