LIGHT STANDS CAN be expensive, especially if you need to purchase a lot of them for your studio. This project uses PVC pipe to serve as a simple, rugged light stand you can use just about anywhere. I even designed an additional leg to hold a sandbag for stabilization.
Since this project is made from PVC, you won’t be able to quickly adjust the height of the stand, but you can cutting different lengths of pipe for the top section to provide different height options for the stand.
