(1) Photographing foggy streams/waterfalls

If the students who pay attention to our website must know that in order to photograph foggy water and waterfalls, we need to use slow shutter, then a tripod will come on stage, even in the daytime, tripod is also essential.

 

To take pictures of brilliant stars or orbits, we need 30 seconds or even hours of exposure, so we have to put the camera on a tripod to get a clear and complete image!12 Reasons for New Photographers to Configure Tripods

(3) Shooting micro-distance works

Tripods are often used when shooting macro works because the depth of field is very shallow, but a little forward or backward movement has defocused, and the aperture is usually very small, it is not easy to press the full shutter, so a tripod will help a lot.

(4) Reducing the weight of the fuselage/lens

For example, using 70-200 mm small black and white, or 800 mm Big Mac lens, mounting the lens (yes, lens, not camera) on the tripod can provide a stable platform for shooting, but also can reduce a lot of weight, making shooting easier.12 Reasons for New Photographers to Configure Tripods

In addition to using hand-held backhand self-timer, we can also shoot the camera frame on the tripod with a timer, which can make self-timer have more ways to play: wide angle, high/low shooting, long-distance shooting can also be achieved one by one!

(6) Photographing Sunrise/Sunset

Although sunrise/sunset is taken in front of the sun, the most beautiful moment is usually Magic Hour time before and after sunrise and sunset, when the sky is not light enough, tripod can ensure that the photograph remains sharp and clear, taking good pictures.12 Reasons for New Photographers to Configure Tripods

(7) Shooting rails

 

(8) Photography of Light Painting

Like the rails, the camera must remain stable and keep the shutter open in order to shoot successfully, so the tripod is one of the necessary tools for shooting light and shadow graffiti.12 Reasons for New Photographers to Configure Tripods

Night portraits do not have to use tripods, but with tripods, we can use a slower shutter, lower ISO to improve the brightness and quality of the background. Of course, the foreground (characters) can not be illuminated by the scene light, otherwise there will be "ghost" appearance.

(10) High-quality night scenery

Small aperture and low ISO are the best combination for high quality night scenes, but the shutter will be slow! Tripod can effectively solve this problem and make shooting easier.12 Reasons for New Photographers to Configure Tripods

To make a time-lapse film, a tripod is necessary, because we need to fix the camera and shoot continuously, then use software to combine these series of photos into a time-lapse film.
