DIY 9.5ft Boom

When you are out on location shoot and need to out a high light above your model, you’ll nned to use a boom.

If you do it in your studio, there is a boom that connects to a studio tripod and you can place your flash there. When you’re out there you’ll need someone to hold that boom for you.

One way to have a boom is to get a monopod, it will come as one piece and ready for action, with one downfall – it is short. In this link Maxell Lander offers a solution by using a normal studio tripod and “transform” it into a boom.

I’ll do this project in case I have broken studio tripod, meanwhile I’m using a monopod as a boom.

Check out Maxell’s blog if you are into more ideas, just be aware that it contains some nudity.
