Are you heavily into photography? Technology these days makes it so easy to take great pictures – and it helps to have great accessories as well. I’ve been enjoying photography for awhile and have gotten into using things like soft boxes and light tents. If you know anything about camera and photography accessories, you know that they can get expensive. So why not DIY them? I’ve pulled together a set of tutorials that will help you get these photography accessories on a budget.
I’m excited because I can use these accessories with the new Samsung Galaxy Camera! This awesome camera is made by AT&T and combines with photography with an Android user platform. In addition, the camera features a 21x optical zoom (as opposed to digital), wide angle lens, editing tools and voice commands. It also has the ability to share right from the phone. Use this camera with any of the accessories I’ve suggested for amazing photos.
