When it comes to landscape photography, few pieces of equipment are considered more vital than the tripod. And while it is certainly a fantastic piece of equipment, it also significantly alters your workflow. So, do you really need a tripod? This great video examines the question and if you can afford to leave your tripod at home the next time you head out.
Coming to you from fototripper, this interesting video discusses if you need to bring your tripod along for landscape photography. No doubt, if you are doing something like very long exposures, you are going to need a tripod, but on the other hand, the advancing stabilization capabilities of lenses and cameras are making it easier than ever to hold your camera for more shots. And there is something to be said for this: while it is certainly more convenient, it also allows you a completely different workflow, as you can focus more on exploring the space and less on logistical concerns. Try leaving your tripod behind the next time you head out. Check out the video above for the full rundown.
