The Cooperative of Photography received a lot of attention recently for a video featuring seven easy photographic hacks using household items. Now they've released a follow up video with seven more neat tips and tricks. For instance, did you know that a beer cozy can be repurposed as a cheap lens protector? And had you considered that a tablet computer might be employed to create a backdrop for still life photographs?

The beauty of these hacks is in their simplicity. Everyone has a mirror handy, but few people think of how to turn that into a lighting tool, for instance, and even if you're not remotely interested in some of the suggestions, hopefully there is something in the video which might spark your imagination (or solve a problem).  

The Cooperative of Photography also offers a series of Q&A sessions with photographers, photo essays and more.
