A while back Treezoy sent me this post from the Strobist website. It’s a super cool DIY lightstand made out of tent poles. Lightweight, portable, inventive. The Strobist did a follow up post: Tent Pole Light Stands: More Details. Both have videos of the Swedish photographer Peter Karlsson designed Tentpole lightstands. Here’s the first video. Make sure to check out the links for more info on the stands.
