Wedding Photographer Kent - Flash Support

For further photography-related information check out my compendium of tips.

When using off-camera flash I often place my Speedlites on lightweight stands fitted with Novoflex Neiger 19 mini-balls (they're sold with flash shoes). This gives almost total freedom in directing the flash light and, in particular, allows you to use the flash in both portrait and landscape orientations. They're very well-made, extremely robust and available from the ever-reliable Speed Graphic for around £20.

Hi David,

I'm looking at getting some of these when back in stock, but I'm unsure if I need to get an screw plate to attach the ball head to the light stand spigot.

I have the Lastolite 1159 which I think is a 3/8" thread in spigot.

Hi Lee,

The ball heads attach to both 3/8" & 1/4" spigots (there's a removable thread attachment).

All the best,
