How to make a bean bag quick and easy

A bean bag is a sealed bag containing dried beans or PVC pellets and can be used as a replacement for a tripod. The bean bag allows you to place a camera on almost any surface and provided great stability for photo shots taken from a ground level (table top).

This is the quick and dirty version of a bean bag. You need a sandwich bag or something similar and beans. The bag can also be filled with peas, rice or Polystyrene Beans used as packing insulation. You need enough to three quarter fill a sandwich bag and seal off the open end. Done.
