What is a light stand?

A light stand is a height-adjustable tripod from which you can suspend flashes, lights or continuous lighting. With its heavy construction, this tripod has been designed for use in studios, rooms and other spaces with a stable surface. Besides standard light stands there are also models with a boom arm, which allow for the light to be suspended above the subject. A few key suppliers of qualitative light stands are Jinbei, Falcon- Eyes, Bresser and Manfrotto.

Load capacity and working height

When choosing a light stand its maximum load capacity is a crucial deciding factor. Based on the model's load capacity you can then determine whether the studio lights and flashes are suitable for the tripod. Standard light stands can easily bear the weight of a few kilos, whereas higher end models boast a load capacity of up to 40kg. Another key aspect is the maximum working height. This can impact how the subject is to be brought into picture and the lighting angle. A standard working height is around 240cm, that is adjusted to the ceiling height of a house or studio. There are also light stands that can fold out to a height of nearly 400cm. Ideal for outdoor filming and photography.

Attaching a light or flash.

A spigot connection is located on top of the light stand. This metal pin features a notch in the middle, which the base of a studio light or flash can be screwed onto. The flash/light's nut clamps onto the tripod via the notch, and secures into position. Thus minimising the likelihood of accidents.
