Pro ’s Killer kit #01 Manfrotto MT 055CXPRO4 Carbon Fibre Tripod
Olly says… Caroline told me she has a tripod but never uses it. We started shooting on a tripod to make life simpler; it frees your hands to adjust controls and think about the shot you want. It’s especially useful for doing longer exposures, and in lower light a tripod is essential. The big window we were shooting by was very bright, so we only needed the tripod to ensure the shot was crisp and still. You also need to think about the tripod head. I use a Manfrotto 055 Magnesium Ball Head with RC4 Quick Release, which is very solid and smooth to move around.
