One of the key questions in this digital age is that of ownership or access.
They say necessity is the mother of invention, but it’s clear nowadays that Kickstarter is at least a favorite uncle. Case in point: When London-based designer Kelly Angood couldn’t afford a medium-format camera, she set out to make her own, and in the process discovered how many other folks shared her interest in pinhole photography and DIY camera kits.
It takes more than a good education to succeed in a any field. It takes real-world experience to learn the practical lessons they don’t teach in school. And if you’re a creative pro it takes a great set of tools to use so you can get the best results for the least amount of time, money, and effort.

Every week, I post news stories on technology, trends, events, and resources for creative pros. I search far and wide for some of those stories, while others are delivered right to my inbox.

If you ever struggle to choose the right exposure settings on your camera, but you don't want to pay for (and lug around) a separate light meter, you might want to check out a Kickstarter project called Luxi.
Luxi is small diffusion dome that clips over the front-facing camera of an iPhone to serve as a light meter.
