I dont know if there is a thread already about homemade stuff. I searched and did not find it. If you have made anything homemade for photography, post it here a long with description how you did it. Let me start: Reflective insulation $16 USD (25 ft long, you can make other handheld reflector) A bag of nut fly 1/4" dia. thread $1 USD Washer $0.09 Just use your sturdy tripod to hold it. Punch a hole on the reflector and use the washer and the nut to screw it to your tripod. Make sure you make the reflector long enough so you can put the end underneath one leg. Then you can change the height of the legs to get different angles.
