I have a "plamp" and it works very well. You either have to anchor it to your tripod or something like a stake pushed into the ground by your subject. They are kind of pricey and you may be able to fabricate something else from items from your local hardware store. I also use it a lot for indoor studeo type flower work during the winter months. I more often than not,try to shoot at sun-up when it seems to be the calmest.
