Like taking pictures out in the open and not in the studio? Like em raw as well? Then you'll find this useful. The Backpack Flash will turn any photographer into an on the go one man photography studio.

The sturdy LowePro backpack was designed for photographers carrying a large tripod around but since Ian Spanier needed to be able to shoot handheld with lots of freedom and movement, he filled the pack with a rechargeable battery powering a Canon flash unit. He did the framing and mounts to position the diffuser dome five inches above his head and the wireless receives so that the flash could be triggered without annoying cables tethered to his camera.

Not a bad hack. [Ian Spanier Photography via PetaPixel]
