DIY Small Inexpensive Sandbags

 Sandbags are great for weighing down light stands so they don't tip over. Here's my version for small person shoots.

Material Cost: $0 - $15
Tip: Not all sand and cat litter are created equal! The heavier, the better!



Place one sand bag to one side, fold, and sew. Then place another one and seal the top.

Optional: Tape down the edges.

Disclaimer: I probably wouldn't use these on really high end professional shoots since they don't weigh as heavy as the ones you buy from a store. I also haven't tested the wear and tear on these either. However, they're good for small personal shoots.

Optional: Sew straps on.
