DIY Tips

Over the last couple of years, a couple of devices have made the press that can be used to control Lightroom with dials and knobs rather than a mouse and keyboard. Both the Palette and Loupedeck received a lot of interest but like a lot of photography accessories, they're not cheap so some clever people have come up with their own alternatives. 

One chap who's done exactly this is amateur photographer Crispian Thorne and he's written a quick blog on how he turned a midi controller into a customisable Lightroom tool with the help of some open source software and a few tutorials, including the videos below. 

The finished device looks pretty cool so do visit Crispian's website to take a look at it and to read more on what it can do. He also shares a link to a Google Group who have plenty of advice on the subject. 

Should you not have had your fill of DIY tutorials, we also have a tutorial on creating your own Light Box and one on making your own DIY turntable for product photography
