Photography DIY Mania!



DIY Flash Diffuser by Matt Greer Photography


Below is a list of links to DIY projects that I have found while surfing the net. I have categorized them by items you can build, since some items have various ways of being made. I did not write any of these DIY articles. I am simply organizing and categorizing the best of the DIY articles I have found.

If you know of any other DIY articles or categories that you recommend, please add a comment. Also please add a comment if you have ever made any photography DIY projects and how well they performed.
