If you're looking for a lightweight flash modifier for your camera, you'd be hard pressed to find a DIY option more flexible — literally and figuratively — than this DIY FlashBender.
The FlashBender is a commercial product that is essentially a wire-mesh panel wrapped in reflective and black fabric that retails for $US35. This no-sew version of the Flash Bender is just as effective as the commercial version at a fraction of the price.
You'll need electrical tape, some small fabric swatches, some hardware mesh, a stapler and some Velcro tabs. Check out the full article at the link below for step-by-step instructions. Have a clever DIY photography hack to share? Let's hear about it in the comments.
