Most times in the field you will see me handholding my cameras. But like anything else, there is going to be those times when you don't want any shake during an long exposure. Dangling your camera over a railing of edge to grab an interesting perspective? Or capturing a moving subject with a mount that allows swiveling to follow the action. For those and much more there is a tripod/monopod to help!
So let's review whats out there:
-Bendable Support, These props articulate legs that wrap around objects. This allows much greater flexibility than standard tripods.
-Tripod These invaluable three legged necessary steadies the camera and large lenses so you can capture a sharp image. They come at many price points, suggesting would be to take into account your camera and lens weight for options.
-Tabletop Tripod A mini version of the classic above. It sits low to the ground and adds light, portable support.
-Monopods are excellent when shooting in areas that you could use a tripod but just don't have the room.
Next time we'll talk about ball heads for your tripods.

Build yourself a study, lightweight V-card reflector out of white form core that you can pick up at art-supply stores.
Lash together two sheets, both about ½ inch in thickness, at one edge with horizontal strips of strong duct tape. (Cut the sheets tall or short depending on the size of intended subject.)
This tool can do it all. Use it to narrow or broaden light depending on how wide or narrow you open it. Or control your contrast by moving your light source towards or away the apex of the V. When not using, simply close it like a book to store!

Well as we all know there are many fine cameras to choose from on the market. Be it Sony, Nikon, Canon, Fuji just to mention a few. But I would love to give a should out to the Camera company I work with quite a bit, Nikon! Today they are celebrating being 10 years old. Nikon has a Website celebrating in many ways including this video!
I'm a photographer who loves animal photography. Trying to capture that perfect moment is a passion of mine.
