DIY Lighting Stands

Make these simple/cheap can stands to clip lights on to for indoor photo shoots or whatevs.

supplies:

empty paint cans, gallon milk jugs, buckets

long sticks from hardware store/lumber yard

concrete

water

something to stir the concrete/water mixture ( i was ghetto and used a screwdriver)

.

.

.

get your sticks

.

and buckets

.

and bag-o-concrete

.

(read the concrete instructions. make fun of the hokey illustrations and slogan: “Do-It-Yourself doesn’t mean Go-It-Alone” and wonder why “Go-It-Alone is a registered trademark)

 

.

add water

.

but not too much. ;(

.

(cue the bob marley) “stir it up”

.

(here’s what the cut out milk carton looks like)

.

let them sit and dry

that’s it. for real. you are done. clamp lights to the stick part. it looks ghetto but it works.
