but once I picked it up, it was love.
After 5 minutes of oohing and ahhing and putting the lens on and all the protective pieces like the lens filter and hood,
and wrapping it securely in bubble wrap before deciding to use it 😉 (jk)
I twisted on that little tripod plate that holds it onto the tripod on and
and after learning more about how each of us liked to work,
or there is something in the background that is taking away from the view.
it leaned to the side and started to fall.
Thankfully, I reached out and grabbed my camera strap
just in time before the whole thing hit the gravel.
I was getting suspicious.
I knew that the two were not a perfect pairing.
So a couple mini posts all about photography coming your way in the next few weeks.
but quite honestly, I wouldn’t be able to really write this blog without the photos
this Manfrotto tripod.
I was not prepared for how heavy this tripod would be.
and I use a tripod all the time so it is definitely something that I consider an important piece
and weight of your camera as well.
Let’s just say that on my old tripod I had to tighten the plate over and over
since it didn’t stay tight mainly because again -my camera is heavy. So the lens would ever so slightly start to pull the camera down a bit. Aggravating to say the least- and it wasn’t a good fit.
and your camera is actually fully and securely attached to the tripod.
#3. Go tall or go home
But… we don’t have the type of mattress that you and the kids can bounce on and the glass of wine won’t fall over.
We have the old school kind that wiggles and wobbles when you stand on it which is not going to work for a crisp photo.
And I remember distinctly focusing and taking the shot before that stool started to wobble.
than eye level it is going to really come in handy.
Absolutely. Lesson learned and I am a little more cautious about it now
but will probably relax as I use it more.
seriously amazing photographer friends sold me on it.
it plays well with you and your camera and enjoy!!
Coming your way this week~
