“A tri­pod may be a bit of a bind to carry on a walk, but it can re­ally open up your cre­ativ­ity in land­scape pho­tog­ra­phy. Us­ing a tri­pod means you don’t need to worry about shut­ter speed, which al­lows for a lower ISO (light sen­si­tiv­ity level) for bet­ter qual­ity and a smaller aper­ture for greater depth-of-field. It also puts you in con­trol of mo­tion, al­low­ing long ex­po­sures to blur peo­ple, clouds and wa­ter, bring­ing an added di­men­sion to images. Most im­por­tantly, a tri­pod en­ables you to fine-tune the com­po­si­tion. In my opin­ion the down­sides of ex­tra weight and en­cum­brance of a tri­pod are far out­weighed by the ben­e­fits that it brings to help­ing you cre­ate stun­ning land­scapes.”
