You'd be surprised how random toys and tools can make a difference to amplify the effects in your photography. One can make different filters for himself to shapen bokeh effects, or use sheets of paper to adjust the bouncing of light, or a cardboard as a makeshift splitzer.
Here's photographer Dan Watson to show you some cool tricks using five different items found from the toy box or novelty store: a smoke emitter, crystal globe, sun catcher, led lights, and a triangular prism.
Here's a video demonstrating how he uses each tool paired with his camera.
