While it’s tempting to move your tripod around with the camera locked in place, it’s best to dismount your camera from the tripod when you’re moving around to avoid any damage to your camera.
Fix a leg that’s come loose with an allen or hex key to tighten it back up.
If you do videography, look at a fluid video head. If you do landscape or architecture, look at a 3-way adjustable head. If you travel and need to keep things lightweight and compact, look for a ballhead.
One way is to use your water bottle as a balancing weight to help hunker down your tripod. Throw the bottle inside a bag with a piece of string attached to loop around the in-built hook on the tripod to keep it as stable as possible, particularly for long-exposure photography.
Landscape and scenery photographers should consider using various Lee filters to help you achieve the best possible colours and exposure effects on your images.
Shutter remotes, from inexpensive infrared remotes to advanced intervalometers, are excellent for long exposure photography. By using a shutter remote, you can avoid touching your camera during and just before the exposure begins to ensure you do not create any blurriness in your images through accidental camera shake.
For time-lapse photography, attach the Syrp Genie to your tripod which will rotate as it captures multiple exposures. The Genie also produces a great effect for perfectly smooth rotation panning shots for your videography.
