Lean in

NPhoto - - The Apprentice -

When shoot­ing rivers, like the Lif­fey here, Joe sug­gests lean­ing the tri­pod against a wall. By putting two legs against the wall, you can ex­tend the other to cre­ate a stable base against the floor. Some­times a tri­pod gets knocked, and you don’t want it fall­ing over and break­ing, so brace it as you shoot. Avoid putting your hand at the top of the tri­pod near the body, though, as this will in­crease the risk of cam­era shake. In­stead, place a toe on the base of the sin­gle ex­tended leg, as this will trans­mit less vi­bra­tion to the cam­era and keep your pho­tos tack-sharp.
