    Is this for holding the subject or other objects?










    In 'my day', we called that a "roach clip" :er: :mrgreen:

    Both. Sometimes the subject, sometimes a diffuser & sometimes a background.

    Always knew them as alligator clips.

    :pimp: ..yep... seen a few of those also.

    We have those "clips" laying around out in the production area were I work...I might have to grab me a few. I wonder if they will believe I really want them for aiding in photography equipment.

    Well "roach clip" went right over my head but I picked up with the subsequent posts. That behavior came after my time.

    Funny in retrospect. :>)
