Although kinda I’m into videography lately (check out my latest video on YouTube.), I still do and always will love photography. And even though I’m doing mostly landscapes, I would love to include more people in them. But I’m getting a little bit sidetracked here. So here’s my question again: Do you even print?
You need a tripod for long exposure photography, right? Now I have used one, on top of my car, for the header. I thought that way for a very long time, but here’s the thing: You don’t.
There are many other things that you can use. As long as your camera sits in a stable position, almost anything will do.
So I got a GoPro for Christmas. And I right away ordered a kitchen timer for it. What for you might ask? As you might now, an old-school, analog kitchen timer turns very slowly, in fact, it’s limited to one 360 degree turn and 60 minutes of runtime. So it’s not really suited for those 24 fps I would usually shoot at.
A lot of people nowadays sell presets for Lightroom, but you might be wondering: Why presets, and how can I create myself?
Presets are predefined edits in Lightroom, I’ll write LR from now on, that you can apply to your images to save a lot of time editing those RAW files you shot. Of course, there’ll still be some manual tweaking involved, but presets can save so much time.
If you’re like me, taking your camera with you anywhere you go, it’s bound to get dirty from time to time. And of course, you want a clean camera, or at least a clean lens and sensor, so that the dirt doesn’t get in the way of the picture.
So here’s how I do it:
From time to time one needs a tripod. A sturdy one.
I have two. Both made by Manfrotto, but that’s not important. They’re both sturdy and pack neatly.
