Tripods? Who Uses Them?
2 months ago

Freeman Patterson, a Canadian photographer of some note ("Photography for the Joy of It"), recommends the use of tripods not just to steady the camera but to slow down the process and add discipline to the framing and composition. Most of his images involve wildlife, landscapes and nature subjects.

Who here makes use of a tripod on a regular basis (not necessarily for every shot)? What tripod do you use? Have you any suggestions for what to look for in a tripod and how to make the best use of it?
