When I first got my lighting equipment my father warned me to watch out for windy days. What he should have said was watch out for a breeze! Every time I take my stand and umbrella outside it topples over with the slightest breeze. I started using 3 bricks (I stretch the feet of the stand out until they are flat, place 2 bricks on either side of one foot, and one brick on top across the other two) but this is hardly the way to go about on location photography. I've taken the Stobist's advice about light-weight equipment; I have two stands, two lumopro flashes, two wireless triggers, and two shoot-through umbrellas. Dragging bricks around completely defeats the purpose of going light-weight, and it's a major PITA if I want to move anything. If I had an assistant it wouldn't be so bad, but I don't. I have a family photoshoot on Saturday and it's going to be by a river, so I'm anticipating high winds. Does anyone have any advice on how to keep these babies grounded? There are two young children that will be in the shots and I don't want them to get hurt, not to mention the constant beating my equipment has been getting lately. I need a to figure something out, fast!
