I've thought of an "arm extender" where I have the flash mounted onto some sort of pole (collapsible maybe?) allowing the flash to be held out maybe 6-9 feet away from me. Can anybody suggest how I can modify existing equipment to do the job?


A monopod will work for shorter distances. A painter's extension pole (for rolling paint on ceilings) is an inexpensive DIY solution for longer ones.

But consider the logistics of wrangling it while shooting and parking it when not using it. Also it's rather difficult to aim a light on a pole predictably,, even if an assitant holds it.
