Shop Samy's to find photography light stands for your next photoshoot, streaming session, or film. Light stands provide a safe, stable foundation on which you can attach all your lighting equipment. Whether you're shooting photos, streaming, or working on a film set, our light stands are up for the task. They're sturdy enough to support all your lighting gear, including continuous lighting, strobes, light modifiers, and any other lighting accessories.

Sturdy metal frames like aluminum and steel give these light stands a strong structure for heavy lighting equipment, with some stands holding over 80 pounds. Locking mechanisms and grip arms provide a secure grasp to hold lights steady.

Every photography shoot is different, so we offer a variety of light stands to fit your exact needs. For example, our light stands can be adjusted to various heights with double and triple risers. Sliding leg C stands allow you to adjust the leg height on the tripod independently for level lighting on uneven terrain. Check out our roller C stands to quickly and easily wheel your lighting equipment around the set. Reverse light stands are great for on-location work as the legs collapse and fold easily. Make sure you have the right light stands on hand for the location and the type of content you are capturing.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ):

How Do Light Stands Work?

Light stands have a grip head or mounting area with locking knobs at the top where you can attach your lighting equipment. Once mounted, lights can be placed in a variety of positions and angles while staying safely secured to the light stand.

Why Is it Called a C Ctand?

The term C stand comes from filmmaking where centuries, a common size of sun reflector used on set in the past, were held up by heavy-duty tripod stands. Today, C stands are used to hold all types of film and photography lighting equipment.

What Makes a Boom Light Stand Unique?

Boom light stands feature an extendable arm, allowing for versatile positioning of lights above the subject, ideal for achieving specific lighting effects and angles that regular stands can't provide.

Are Portable Light Stands Reliable for Outdoor Shoots?

Portable light stands are designed for reliability and ease of transport, making them ideal for outdoor shoots. They are lightweight yet sturdy, ensuring stability even in challenging outdoor environments when set up properly.

How Do I Choose the Right Light Stand for My Needs?

When choosing a light stand, consider the weight of your equipment, the required height, and the stand's portability. For heavier setups, opt for stands with a higher weight capacity. Consider adjustable and portable stands if you tend to shoot on location or when you don't have access to a permanent studio.

Can I Use Light Stands for Both Photography and Video?

Absolutely! Light stands are incredibly versatile and perfect for both photography and video projects. They're designed to support a variety of lighting setups, so whether you're working with continuous lighting for video shoots or using strobes and flashes for photography, many light stands can handle it all. This makes them a great choice for any kind of visual media work.

What Are the Benefits of Using a Reverse Light Stand?

Reverse light stands are designed for easy storage and transportation, with legs that collapse and fold neatly. They are ideal for photographers and videographers who frequently travel or work on location.

How Do I Ensure Stability of Light Stands on Uneven Terrain?

For stability on uneven ground, opt for light stands with adjustable or sliding leg C stands. These enable precise leveling on irregular surfaces. To enhance stability further, consider adding sandbags or weights to the base, especially in windy conditions, to prevent tipping and protect your equipment.
