Why You Should Get Revolutionary & Helpful Tripod Right Now

5 REASONS WHY TRIPOD IS A NECESSITY!⠀



A SHORT INTRODUCTION

Tripod is a great gadget and a must photography item that helps you capture the ideal pictures in basically all circumstances. Well, maybe not only during the huge storms, yet depends how sturdy your tripod is (GorillaPods are great for bad weather conditions).

Lets just forget about the storms as storms are every photographers nightmare. Tripods are usually made from aluminum but there are whole bunch of models and kinds on todays market.

The main use of tripod is to prevent camera movement which provides stability and results in achieving maximum SHARPNESS.

Many people still think tripods are only for professionals which is totally false. I am not going to talk in this blog post how tripods are necessary for every professional photographer because every professional already has at least one. Instead, I will explain you why tripod is a great solution for everyone in order to preserve the best photo memories that actually look decent and that are eventually usable for social medias, printing etc.

WHY YOU SHOULD GET A TRIPOD ALTHOUGH YOU ARE NOT A PROFESSIONAL PHOTOGRAPHER?

I think we all have at least one photo from a certain place that looks bad that we wish we have done it better. Actually, we know we could done it better. Well, this is the main reason why you should get a tripod. Simply, you are less likely to have dozens of bad photos which in the end, saves time of deleting those and scrolling all over your albums.

This great gadget will help you achieve not only sharpness but also precise framing of the image. One of the most important reasons to add, you will also have more time to think about the shoot you are taking, not just take snaps and pray they end up good.  

Taking time to shoot brings a certain amount of concentration on the lighting of your subjects. One more reason to add, you can finally forget about bothering strangers and asking them to take a photo of you or placing your phone and camera on the rocks, books or basically anything you find around you that can actually damage your gear.
A tripod only takes seconds to erect and adjust. ⠀



IN BRIEF, 5 REASONS WHY TRIPOD IS A NECESSITY

✔ADVANTAGES:⠀

  • It helps your phone/ camera to be steady (no hand shakiness) especially when taking night time shots (low light), close ups – MAKES SUPER SHARP IMAGES or when you use telephoto lenses
  • It helps with video making, it is essential for making time lapses⠀and sport (movement) photography
  • It helps create great astrophotography (full moon photos for example) and nature (landscape) photography when your perfect shot depends on seconds (wild nature, birds flying etc.)
  • It is adjustable, flexible and helps shoot from various angles helping you spark your creativity⠀
  • It will make you look serious (I had people approaching me and asking me: “Do you work on TV?” lol) ⠀⠀

❎ DISADVANTAGES:⠀

  • Extra gear to carry, it can be heavy and annoying to open and close all the time⠀
  • In some indoor places (usually museums and galleries) you are not allowed to bring tripod (unless you have a written permission)⠀

CONCLUSION

Tripods have good and bad sides like everything in this world. HOWEVER, there are more advantages then disadvantages about tripod so you DEFINITELY SHOULD GET ONE. Luckily, today there are plenty cheap but worth models.

GET A TRIPOD FOR CAMERA AND A PHONE, 2 IN 1!

For beginning, I advise you to choose lighter and affordable tripod with Bluetooth remote shutter and a carrying, waterproof bag. You could also order Bluetooth remote shutter apart without a tripod, but I advise you to buy it all together – it saves money. Bluetooth remote shutter is like a remote control that connects via Bluetooth to your IOS or Android device enabling you to control your devices shutter release and capture pictures from up to 10m.

WHY IS PEYOU A GREAT TRIPOD FOR PHONE AND CAMERA

If you start doing more professional photography or you just feel like you are ready to invest more money, get a sturdier one.⠀I bought my sturdy Peyou tripod a year ago on Amazon for around 25 dollars and I am still happy with it. It is not like a Gorillapod but it serves me well. It comes with Bluetooth remote shutter, phone holder and a carrying case bag. My tripod is not only a camera tripod but also a phone tripod! It’s called PEYOU and you can see more about it by clicking on the photo below.⠀

There are many more tripods out there with an amazing features such as LED ring tripod with light which is the best choice for YouTube video makers or make-up bloggers. Before getting any, I advise you to do a research and clarify your needs. I am always here to help with some additional information!

See how tripod helped me in my solo travel in Valencia when I was exploring street art or when I was solo travelling back to my hometown Solin in Croatia.

Do you use tripod and which one? What is your experience with tripod? Or you still make photos on an old fashioned way – with a timer and asking strangers to take pictures of you (Asians preferably)? ⠀

  5. We have the 1st tripod you talked about! We like to be backpack only girls and it is very packable and super convenient because we can twist it around light poles and move it in any which way in order to get a good angle! The Bluetooth remote is the best!!!! I would tell everyone to get one.

  6. Oh my gosh yes, I agree with everything in this post! I love traveling with a tripod and I don’t think I’ve ever traveled without mine. The weight is a definite downside though, especially if you’re already paying extra for luggage!

  7. I feel like you MIGHT have been reading my mind last weekend. I was trying to do a photoshoot solo. After trying to maneuver my Bluetooth remote selfie stick with all sorts of props I realized it was time to be a big girl and just invest in the tripod already. Thanks for all of the great tips!

  8. We’ve actually considered going for a tripod quite a few times now. In hindsight, many of our mobile camera photos could have turned out better had we used one. And the Gorillapod looks extremely sturdy, maybe we’ll go for that!

  9. I have the Joby tripod and really like it because of how easy it is to travel with. It’s definitely not adequate for all situations, but it usually does the trick! Great list of alternatives!

  10. Great points you have covered up there! A tripod really makes a difference.. I prefer those small gorilla pods!

  11. As a solo traveler, I found a tripod to be really handy! I just got a super cheap one a few years and it broke really easily, so this one looks like like a good investment!

    1. Definitely you should get one sturdier and a bit more expensive. I am still happy with Peyou as it is still working, did not broke at all plus I even have a remote shutter. Well, see, but def invest a bit more money and it will last much longer. I have mine for more than a year. 🙂

  12. Great post! I took way too long to get a tripod, but now I hardly go anywhere without it! It’s certainly the best camera gear investment ever!

  13. I really need to take this advice! I usually just prop my DLSR on whatever high surface I can find. Usually narrow fences, windows or dusty surfaces (always feels dangerous). But i get lazy about lugging around a tripod all day. Thanks for the post – it’s time to invest in one!
