Cardboard Hacks for Creative Photography

Patience, creativity, openmindedness are among the qualities a photographer should possess. Ingenuity, however, is accompanied by sheer willpower and passion. For the clever photographer, a cardboard can already do loads of things.

This 4-minute video from the Cooperative of Photography has some more tricks upon its sleeves with just a cheap piece of cardboard. Don't pass this one out.
