PVC Pipe Craft Projects: Photography Set

I am new to photography. I  kind of jump in with both feet but my purse was to light to really jump all the way in. I am really working hard on taking my images to the next level. The issue is photography is very expensive.  I found that PVC Pipe Craft Projects can not only save you money but they can make easily mobile photograph shooting centers.

Supplies:

  • Measuring Tape
  • PVC pipe cutter (you can use a saw)
  • 4 pieces of PVC pipe
  • 4 of each of the PVC shapes above

 

The first thing you need to decide is the width of your photo studio. I knew I wanted to use mine with these 2×2 backgrounds so I did what any normal person would do I measured.

Then I laid out my pipe for the top and the bottom I measure a little longer than my background and took into account the corner pvc pieces.

Then we marked the pvc pipe with a pencil and decided to cut it.

You want to do the same thing with the sides. I built mine using the same measurements because if I want to make it  taller I can put in taller PVC poles or wider that can also be altered by the length of the pole.

You will want to take your pole laugh and cut it in half to make your legs for the project.

You will make two of these. They will stabilize your set. The V shape should face away from the center on both sides. You will need to make sure you add the end caps to make sure you can easily move your photography set.

Then you will add the T shaped PVC pipe the one of the long PVC pipes

Then you will need to add your sides.

Finally add the corner pieces and the additional bar across. I would label the pac pipes with the length. In case you want to have multiple sets and set ups.
