 Get the right shape




First, get an unwanted pair of jeans with a sturdy zip. Then mark a line across the mid-waist and legs. You want to create a ‘V’-shaped groove for maximum stability.

Bean there, done that!

I prefer to use ordinary lentils as a filling because they feel fluid yet supportive inside the beanbag. Poke a funnel through the zip, fill it up and close the zipper to seal.

 

Cut out your pattern

Cut the jeans to size, leaving a decent-sized hem. Ensure the zip is undone as you do this. Turn the jeans inside out before you start stitching.

Stabilise the situation

Field-test time! Rest your lens in the beanbag’s ‘V’ shape for instant stability. You can also hang that same ‘V’ shape over a car door for a stable shooting platform.

 

See the difference…

You’ll be able to see the results instantly, because such a stable and comfy platform means you can stay in position longer – and eliminate elbow-induced camera shake.
