A tripod and a camera filming the landscape

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)? ⠀

PHOTO WALK: A DAY IN AMSTERDAM 2019

Hello world, it’s me again! 🙂

The spring is getting closer!

Flowers are starting to smell as well as the scent of new adventures.
Besides, spring is perhaps the best time to visit Amsterdam, until the King’s day (King’s night) when the streets are becoming way more packed with people.

That’s why I will write next few posts about Amsterdam to complete a full guide around the city so you can be sure that you’ll explore Dutch capital properly – as a local. Even better than local!

Actually, in today’s post I’m not going to write anything else. I will just share some awesome photos that will make you book your trip to Amsterdam right away! Or, at least to start following my blog right away! 🙂

So just sit back, relax and enjoy a digital walk around Amsterdam.
