Advantages of Using an L Bracket

This episode is all about how to make your own light stand quickly and easily for much cheaper than a regular light stand. I bought an Avenger L bracket and attached it to a 2×4, you can mount it to a wall or any other surface that is stable enough. This is great for shooting from the ground or ceiling and getting those bulky stands out of the way.

    Hey Matt! I believe Aaron got his off Amazon, but I found it on this website: http://www.glazerscamera.com/store/f809-baby-plate-w-9o-angle.html

    Yep – Tried a Google search - Even did a screen capture and tried a Tineye search – No results!  Can we have specifics Aaron?!! Pretty please!

  • Tim Piggott

    Thanks Amelia – Got it now! A search for “Avenger F809″ does the trick nicely!

    It’s only $16 at the B&H link. I am going to get one of these I shoot in my garage and dont have a lot of space so this would be so perfect.
