INSTANT cheap photography hack (that’s photoshop free!)

Want to spice up your photography or videography? There are so many ways with mirrors, prisms, crystal balls or led lights, you can create amazing images on the cheap (see my blog post here)

Let me tell you my #1 photography tool that I bring to every wedding, especially when there are sparklers, hanging lights, glow sticks, led lights or other interesting light sources around.

Can you believe that I am using a $9 2 inch copper pipe from your local hard ware store?

I am literally holding it up to my lens and bending the light around the pipe as I see lights around me on the dance floor or around me. I love that it’s battery free and something that I can throw it in my hip pouch during a wedding (yes, I wear a hip pouch for weddings, don’t judge me)

I love being able to instantly change the look of my photo with little to no effort at all and deliver fast images and sneak peeks to the client without spending HOURS in photoshop to change my photos to do a similar effect.
