The meetup last night was fun

I had a great time meeting and chatting with people at the meetup last
night. 

I'd like to toss out a theme for a get together some time:
Low budget gear tricks.

Richard was talking about using foam core and car sunshades as
reflectors.

I make flash diffusers out of plastic bottles and a bit of foam:

And made a "big dumb tripod" base out of plumbing and a bit of
aluminum that I drilled and tapped:

I'd love to see more do it yourself, or inexpensive, gear that works
about as well as the expensive stuff.

By the way, I work down by Blossom Hill and 101 (next to Coyote Creek
Park), would anybody else be interested in getting together for lunch
and a bit of shooting sometime?
