Carrying Your Tripod

August 24, 2018  •  1 Comment

When traveling to take pictures, do you take all of your equipment?  Last Monday, August 20, I took a trip back to my old stomping grounds where I grew up in Norwich, Connecticut.  Click the preceding link to see the two galleries from my trip.  One piece of equipment I left behind that I left behind and hadn’t even crossed my mind to bring is my tripod.



If you have a tripod (and you should) that tool should be on your person whenever you’re out with your camera.  Here’s why:




I didn’t anticipate going to The Norwich Rose Garden.  As you can clearly see, having my tripod with me would have improved my photography on Monday. No one can expect to get flowers in focus without a steady hand. 


The ONLY way to get focused flower photography is to use your tripod.  If you have one, carry it with you whenever you travel with your camera; even if you don’t anticipate you’ll need it.  Just because you don't EXPECT to use one, you don’t want to have the same experience I did and run into a situation where you wished you DID have it with you.



In the meantime:
Focus on what's ahead of you.

I usd to travel with my camera AND my tripod. Now, i only bring it when i want to take pictures of the moon, the meteor showers, or an eclipse. Carrying it just adds to the burden.
