Im planning some very early spring woods/lakes shots and Í will need hardware some help with basic lighting equipment clips/clamp. I do have a (2-30 "and two 42fold out disc that needs some control with (8ft+) light stand and maybe clamps to clamp screen to a tree or so. Then there are the supports for the 42 (4in1) screen to use for refection/soft screen and the 42disc to block direct.
I nikon flash sb800 sb600 and rwo r200 used for nikon macro.
Im always grateful to the Nikonian as your help guides me throught a shorter learning and saves me money as I will always buy something that does not work with my set-up Thanks!!

I'm just wondering - wouldn't two lightstands for your OCF or gorilla pods be enough? You could use a large white sheet if you wanted to diffuse the light more or large umbrellas

Dear Alan and RimaB
I believe that early spring green is the most photogenic time of year in Michigan. One of our early spring wildflowers is called Trillium; it is somewhat rare and flowers for maybe 7-10 days, between April and May. Also that time of year the woodlands are not so thick that the over growth is blocking any DOF distance.
Im practicing my lighting and pushing the DOF for a panoramic photo. Im currently using some fake flowers (indoors) and trying all this from a ground level kind of shot.
I do have a few different size reflector disc, but any kind of wind will easily move the reflections position.
So, I need to secure them, plus it is time to purchase one or two light weight light stands and maybe a cross bar also?
There are so many brands and kinds of accessories, your input would be appreciated. I've learned from other projects that cheap equipment is a real pain
RimaB, your sheet idea is outstanding!!!
