About The Plamp
One end of the Plamp clamps to your tripod while the other grasps the object. Use the Plamp to stabilize windblown subjects, adjust the position or angle of your subject, or move obstructing foliage. You can also use the Plamp to hold reflectors and lens shades. One day in the field with a Plamp and you will begin to realize its full potential.
Two Plamps are better than one...
It is often useful to have more than one Plamp. Use one Plamp to hold your subject while the other holds a reflector or holds back obstructing foliage.

*A large piece of crinkled aluminum foil can be folded into a small square and positioned close to your subject for dramatic spotlighting. Or, it can be unfolded and flattened to produce diffused fill light. Plain white paper can be used as an effective diffuser for harsh mid-day lighting conditions, and translucent colored paper can produce interesting and artistic results.
