The ability to effectively use artificial light to create lighting scenarios and effects that are otherwise difficult or impossible to achieve with just ambient light is a hallmark of advanced photographers and videographers. Recent years have seen a surge in popularity of the strobist method --- using small off-camera flashes to create big dramatic light, at a fraction of the cost and bulk of studio lights.
A light stand is an essential part of a reliable lighting kit. It should be tall and sturdy enough for studio/home use, yet light and rugged enough for shooting in the great outdoors. A decent light stand should be able to meet the demands of stability and portability without breaking the bank.
Our light stands come in heights that range from 1.9 m to 5.4m. Options include quick-lock or twist-lock clasps, and spring-type or air-type cushioning, alloy or steel construction, and integrated boom arms. Pair these with our grip arms and booms, heavy-duty brackets and flash holders. For even more flexibility, we also carry several boom stands and the studio workhorse C-stands. Take your mobile studio on the road with our carrying bags that are big enough for 3 light stands.
