Make Your Own Laptop Platform for Tethered Shooting

Tethered shooting is a great setup when
you’re in a space that allows it. Obviously it’s not for everyone,
but if you can get away with keeping a laptop hooked up to your
camera it can save a lot of time and make storage concerns disappear.

You can shell out good money for a
laptop tray if you like, but if you’ve got a baking tray, a hacksaw
and a little time, you can make your own. The concept is fairly
simple – put a hole in the bottom of the tray, pop some foam on top,
use a wingnut to secure the tray to the tripod – but there’s a bit
more to it than it sounds.

The folks over at DIY
Photography
have posted a nice tutorial on how to convert a
baking tray into a laptop platform for all your tethered shooting
needs. They’ve got the full details along with pics on their site.
