DIY bag for lightstands, umbrellas. And as soon as I order them, superclamps.

Yes, the idea was from standbagger, but I made the pockets wider, so I can put in the lightstands with attached umbrella holders.


The tripod was a little too large for the pockets. D'oh! Whatever, just putting it on the top of it works as well. Once the bag is folded, it's nicely put in place.


Setup: AL (sun through shades)

    this is a great idea...!
    have all this stuff in one bag, bounding around....

    Great. Where do you get the fabric? can you sew this with a sewing machine?

    I got the fabric from an outdoor shop. It's called "Cordura 1000", lots of outdoor stuff you can buy are made out of this.
    As for sewing, I have an old sewing machine which was made for schools. Almost every part of it is out of metal and it's more powerful than the average sewing machine. But you have to give it a try. The long seams won't be a problem, but attaching the straps could be one.
