If you are like me (young and poor) and always trying to capture the best images with a very limited budget, this thread is for you. Yes, you old folks can come too I guess. Well I’ve taken some time to put together links that have certainly saved me a lot of cash.

While these links may not be so helpful to the deep pocketed pros here, they will certainly help people with no $$.

With this said, I would like to now post a warning:
Anything that you choose to do to your equipment is by your own choice, and as such, myself nor Pbnation can be held responsible for your stupidity.

Because you pay for professional design. Those are my rates. Good luck finding quality work for cheaper.

I think its ironic that the title says DIY and yet you ask, in the wrong spot to begin with, SOMEONE else to make you a logo.

oh a heads up about copyrights. yes you do get copyrights the instant you take a picture but is limited for criticism, education, ect. copyright is always a good idea so go to that website. i believe it cost money so heres what you do. you take a bunch of pictures and mark it as a album and copyright the album instead of individual pictures. save some money
