There are times when using a tripod is necessary… often in landscape photography when you want a crystal clear photo, a tripod helps to steady your camera much more so than hand holding it. It’s a must for long exposure photographs and can be useful in many different situations. Of course, candid shots and street photography by their very nature do not lend themselves to the use of a tripod when you need quick flexibility and the ability to move your camera to keep your subject in frame.
With today’s advanced cameras, many have a lens or in camera body stabilization feature. Be sure to turn that off when using a tripod as the motor in the stabilizer fights against the steady tripod and can work exactly opposite of what you want.
Remember to turn it on again when you are off the tripod…
Simple but helpful…
Get out there and #capturethemoment, have a great weekend everyone!
