| p.1 #6 · adapting lighting stand to hold background? |
It depends on just how low-fi you want your solution to be.
When I started out I used two spring clamps on the stops of my light stands - the grips formed a vertical V. I put the roll paper on a mop handle and placed it in the V. Worked perfectly.
- $3 for large spring clamps
- Mope handle was free and multipurpose
At a later date I bought some 1" or 1.5" PVC pipe and drilled a single hole at each end, the hole fit over the light stand top but since it did not come through the second wall of the PVC at was captured at the top.
- about $3
I think I did that because my wife was annoyed with my endless use of the mop for things other than mopping.
Finally, I bought the large background stand kit from Calumet when they were having a sale.
BTW, I still have the PVC pipe and have used it when I do not want to bother with the background stand kit.
