Plamp

NPhoto - - The NPhoto Apprentice -

A plamp is a plant-hold­ing de­vice that grips onto a sta­ble sur­face, like a tri­pod leg, and also onto a plant. It’s de­signed to re­duce move­ment of the sub­ject due to wind. When pho­tograph­ing at high mag­ni­fi­ca­tion, even a slight breeze can move grasses and flow­ers wildly around the frame, so hold­ing it in place in­creases your chances of tak­ing a sharp shot. It’s ad­vis­able to only use it on thicker-stemmed plants though, be­cause grip­ping more del­i­cate flora, such as Orchids, could dam­age the plant.
