3 Reasons to Use a Tripod
To get the perfect picture you need a clarity which is provided by stability. A photographers best tool is a good sturdy tripod. Use a tripod to gain consistent lighting, consistent framing, consistent depth and a great way to free up your hands to do all the others things you are juggle to make the perfect shot.
Tripods can seem like a tool that would be more beneficial to the pro photographer or mabe even the landscape photographer but trust me when I say, it benefits the product and stock DIY’ers too.
Now I am not saying you should run out and buy the $300 tripod, that’s a bit crazy, don’t ya think? I personally purchased the K&F Concept Tripod (pictured above and below) with its abilities to setup over a flat lay it is a dream come true!!
But hey, even basic tripods are helpful. I started with an Amazon basics tripod just to get a feel for the tripod and many ways I could use one. Now that tripod is my go-to for my Youtube channel. They provide many different options to help you out when you’re trying to get your product photos done in a quick and timely manner while maintaining your image quality over blurriness.
The first thing, and what I feel is most important, is that a tripod can provide stability which increase the photo clarity, precision and optimal lighting. When you setup your tripod in one spot, you don’t have to move it so controlling the environment and styling becomes much easier.
Switch out your setups with ease! When I setup the tripod I can work more efficiently. Not having to worry about the camera, my positioning or settings allows me to focus on swapping out the props and products much quicker. It also helps you keep the same positioning and composition if you’re just switching out your products but keeping the same setup your images aren’t slightly off or misaligned.
Another great reason, as I mentioned briefly above, you can keep your settings the same. If you snap a photo moving around in different places or positions you will quickly realize that your lighting can be different and you might have to change your settings. When you use the tripod you can set your camera to exactly what you need and walk away from it knowing every time you snap the trigger your good to go!
Okay okay, one last and most important tip that I just had to add in… taking better care of yourself. Taking lots of photos on your own, styling and moving props can wear on your back. Using a tripod gives you a chance to reduce straining, bending over alot and bad posture! That alone is reason enough!
So as you continue to improve your skills and look for ways to up your game consider the tripod a good friend and a good investment. See you again soon, friend!
