You can use it to attach a cable to the column. If you trigger your flash via cable or have it connected to a power supply: you can organise the cable with that clip. Moving the stand around will also cause the cable to move along. If only attached to the flash (at the top of the stand) moving the stand might cause the cable to go diagonally to the ground, ...

As others have said, the primary purpose of the clip is to route cables along the shafts of light stands. The two holes are for using Allen-type wrenches to help leverage spreading the clip when installing it onto or removing it from the shaft of the light stand. They're not really needed if the shaft is in the lower range of diameters for which the clip is ...

I hope this question gets a lot of answers because it is a complex situation. My two cents are: 1) The obvious. Have a very fast lens, and I mean a very fast lens. 2) Use the bigger ISO your camera can give you. Probably one ISO less than the maximum.

This question is a little abstract... If your flash heads are heavy you need a sturdy stand. If you are on the outside you could use a sandbag to add weight. If you are using the light just a fill light or lateral, or whatever light you can use any stand. If you are taking specificly butterfly lighting then a boom tripod or C-stand it is usefull, but not ...

The small Westcott softboxes I have have an integrated metal ring to which the fabric and softbox supports are permanently attached. The flash mounting bracket then locks to that. For an example from one of their small softboxes, see Softbox 26 Octa. Or for their larger ones, they use interchangeable speedrings (for different studio light brands, or for ...

There are many traditional conservative practices and ceremonies that do not mix well with modern recording equipment. The problems may be poses, lighting, or other issues. The reason might be a simple as, "It isn't done." When this has happened to me, I have been successful in staging a second "virtual" ceremony for the "camera" and posterity with more ...
