In this quick DIY video, Tiffany shows you how to create your own reflector stands using Polystyrene (styrofoam) boards found at your local big box hardware store to use as reflectors for use in your photo studio (as made popular by Sue Bryce).
These can also be used as backdrops for entertaining, such as behind cake tables, or make a great background for photo booths due their light weight and ability to easily pin various materials to the background.
Materials required: (1) Polystyrene board (1.5" thick x 8' tall x 4' wide) (2) 8" x 10" shelf brackets (2) 2x4's cut to 18" each (2-6) long screws (at least 1.5") with accompanying nut to connect the brackets to polystyrene board (8-12) 1/2" screws to screw the shelf brackets into the base
Tools required: Screwdriver Wrench Drill (to drill pilot holes and small screws into the 2x4's) Hand saw or table saw (to cut the 2x4's)
Total cost for this project will run about $30 for materials.
