In this do-it-yourself video tutorial, Michael Quack from Visual Pursuit Studios shows FotoTV how to make a heavy-duty boom stand out of materials that can be purchased from a local hardware store. Quack constructs a strong and long-lasting boom stand to support the weight of a boom and soft-box, as well as increasing its flexibility to also mount continuous lights, strobes, or other holders. In addition, he explains important aspects to consider, concerning precautionary measures, counterweight, material and size when constructing your own boom stand. This extra sturdy, durable boom stand is the ideal tripod boom stand for countless studio applications and very easy to make.
