A bazillion DIY photography Projects...

Okay, maybe it's not a bazillion projects (it's more like 67), but listed here are plenty of low cost/no cost DIY photography specific projects that will keep you busy for quite some time (and also save you a dollar or two).

If you have a DIY project not listed here please let us know so we can add it to our list as we are going to maintain a "DIY Project" list that our readers can refer to.

If you complete one of these projects (or have done one in the past) we would love to learn how you did it and see pictures of the completed project, so please let us know about that too.

New, let the fun begin.
