Block Out That Glare with a DIY Monitor Hood

November 9th, 2011

DIY Hood.jpgIf you’re editing in a room with light
coming in from the windows or other bright light sources then a
monitor hood is an essential. Monitor hoods aren’t exactly
expensive, but why spend money on something that you can make
yourself.

The latest project over on DIY
Photography
teaches you how to make your own monitor hood, giving
you complete freedom to customize and save a few bucks while you’re
at it. The hood created in the guide uses plastic, but creator Roger
Sacul says that foamboard will work if you don’t feel like working
with plastic.

You’ll need a little bit of time on
your hands to make this, but the materials are pretty cheap and the
construction isn’t too complicated. It’s well worth taking a look at.
