Tortilla chips, bean bags, and beer bottles – yep, that’s right. In a recent New York Times interview, travel photographer Robert Caplin shared some of his secrets on how to shoot like a pro on a shoestring budget.
Take a look at the article and learn how to filter your flash using tools at hand (yes, even a tortilla chip or beer bottle will do). Caplin also lets us in on the best poor man’s tripod (that’s where a small bean bag comes in). And he shares great tips on getting the most out of your iPhone shots, as well his favorite iPhone apps, and which point-and-shoot cameras he considers the best values.
Bottom line: You don’t have to have a professional rig to take great shots. All it takes is a great eye and some ingenuity. Any tips you Blurbarians want to share?
