We had the opportunity to photograph a recently renovated house last week. It went fine until one of my light stands left a scratch on the floor! I have three stands, two Manfrotto 5001B’s and a thirteen footer from Paul C. Buff for the Alien Bee 800. Yeap you guessed it, it was the thirteen footer. The scratch was superficial and was easily buffed out but I learned my lesson. Each of the feet on the thirteen footer now has cardboard slippers wrapped in masking tape, ugly but effective. Here’s my favorite shot from the shoot.
