Hello all,

I have a Bogen 3021BN tripod with a 3262QR ball head. I have been playing around with macro work, either by opening the legs of tripod out all the way to get my N80 down low or reversing the center column to drop the camera upside down. I have also been working the lighting (when the sun is in an agreeable position) using a small 12" LiteDisc reflector from Photoflex, holding it by hand.

Performing macro work with a working distance measured in inches, the LiteDisc is almost always very close to the tripod. I know that there are stands and holders that you can purchases specifically to hold the LiteDiscs (or any other reflector for that matter), but they are quite large and I wonder if there are smaller solutions that would simply attach the thing to one of my tripod legs.

Has anyone encountered such a solution? What products (clamps, arms, etc.) were involved?
