No strap

As the pair were set­ting ev­ery­thing up at the be­gin­ning of the shoot, Michael no­ticed that Alan didn’t have a cam­era strap at­tached to his D750. “That’s good, Alan – you may not have done it in­ten­tion­ally, but I al­ways get pho­tog­ra­phers to re­move their cam­era straps be­fore they start. Straps just flap about in the wind and cre­ate in­sta­bil­ity, even when the cam­era is mounted on a tri­pod. You al­ways want com­plete still­ness when shoot­ing seascapes,” he ex­plained. An­other handy tip for max­i­miz­ing sta­bil­ity when shoot­ing on a tri­pod is to weigh it down by hang­ing a cam­era bag, or some­thing of sim­i­lar weight, from the hook at the bot­tom of the cen­tre col­umn.
