The Social and Tandy, Snails & Ball

I had fun designing these two logos that go on the door of The Social, a new studio space in Los Angeles (Atwater to be exact).  Check out this post for a studio tour and to see why there are two names on the same door.  Photo by the rad Jenn Emerling.

I tried an experiment the other day to see if three of the B&H Photo Impact 8′ Air cushioned light stands would fit in a rifle case I had.  The case is a Plano Model 1502, that I feel like I paid about $20 for at Dick’s Sporting Goods a few years ago.  The three stands, two 32″ umbrellas, one 40″ umbrella, and 3 umbrella brackets with flash shoes fit pretty well.  I did try putting a larger Photoflex stand in there, but it was too wide, making it impossible to close the case.

This may be a good option for traveling with light stands if you are throwing them in the back of a car with a lot of other equipment.  For the most part, when I travel locally with stands, I end up just throwing them in a bag that came with a folding chair.  Just thought I’d share this in case there was anyone out there googling around to see if someones tried this yet.
