TML Meira Tips and Tricks: Using the Meira Stand Transcript

Hi, Michael with The Makeup Light. And in this video, we're going to cover how to set up the stand for your new Meira.

And you will find that you get it out of the box, that it is pretty tight on the adjustments, and it needs to be that way because it's got a handle the weight of the Meira, and you don't want it falling backwards or forwards or drooping.

So it's best you can adjust it, just use two hands, once you get that open a little bit and to place it on your surface, use this hand as support, and then you can freely adjust the angles.

What you want to keep in mind is center of gravity. And that is going to be in the center of the base. So you can make this tall or short and just adjust this back plate angle to accommodate the center of gravity.

So if I want this up taller, I can bring the arms up taller, but now it's angled way too far back. So I can simply adjust that angle and make it pretty straight up about like this. And then the Meira will simply drop right on it.
