  1. Another tip on the use of beanbags. I keep two home-made beanbags in my truck, filled with rice. One is about 2-3 pounds, the other is about 5 pounds. I use them for photographing wildlife from the front seat of my truck. I set one beanbag on the door/window and rest my long lens on top of the beanbag. I then take the other beanbag and set it on top of my long lens. The extra weight resting on top of the lens really increases stability.
