The Perfect Repurposed Lighting And Grip Case?

I love putting non-photographic gear to use in the photo world—especially when that stuff is so perfectly suited to photography. Turns out lots of stuff from the music world can actually be repurposed effectively in photography. For instance, I use a drummer’s throne in lieu of a posing stool. It functions just the same, and cost a fraction of the sanctioned photo stool. Here’s another great suggestion I just read about at DIYPhotography.net: use a guitar case to haul around lighting gear—particularly stands and other long grip supplies. It makes perfect sense when you think about it—which I’m glad Udi Tirosh did. Read about it at DIYPhotography.net.
