John Shaw's closeups in nature

Creator: John Shaw | Photography - 1987-09-01

About this book
The nature photographer John Shaw offers the first book to apply closeup techniques to the subject of nature. Most of the available material on closeup photography concentrates on studio techniques, which can't be used effectively in the field. Discussing the basic technical considerations as they apply to outdoor closeup photography, Shaw covers exposure, equipment, and composition. Specific techniques and equipment applications include - extension tubes and bellows; macro lenses; internal focusing lenses; zoom lenses; supplementary lenses; teleconverters; flash; and lighting. Studio work and other methods are explained in relation to why they are not practical in the field. The book is illustrated throughout with Shaw's fine, full-color images.

John Shaw's landscape photography

Creator: John Shaw | Photography - 1994-04-01

The Gitzo 341, with the same legs as the 320, gives you the option of removing the centerpost assembly entirely and replacing it with a flat platform. Consequently, this tripod will go absolutely flat on the ground if you need that ...

About this book
From grand vistas to intimate woodland glades, landscapes are favorite photography subjects. Too often, however, photographer's visual experiences of the majestic outdoors aren't reflected in the pictures they make. Why? Because many people overlook the importance of good technique, believing that exotic locations and expensive lenses create fantastic pictures. As John Shaw, the famous nature photographer and best-selling author, demonstrates in this definitive book, expertise as a landscape photographer comes from mastering techniques and developing a personal response to nature, not from having a large budget for travel and equipement. John Shaw's Landscape Photographyteaches that producing good photographs means learning how to control the tools of photography: camera equipement, lenses, film, light, and exposure. The goal Shaw proposesis to make technical proficiency second nature, so that it doesn't intrude when it is time to compose great pictures. With lessons fully illustrated by 195 color photographs, including many before-and-after sequences, this beautiful book also covers all the basics of photographic design and composition that characterize brillian portraits of the landscape.

    0 3/5 PDXJosh (Portland, OR) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) The ballhead must be removed for this to folded to its stated dimensions. The newer 1544t has a shorter center column to allow for the ballhead to be covered by the legs when they are folded back. I bought this one and was disappointed until I realized they came up with the 1544t. Much better and only a few bucks more. The only difference again is the slightly shorter center column. 99.9% of the time you should not raise the center column anyway to keep the tripod more stable. I now have the 1544t with a Really Right Stuff BH-30 ball head and the combo is perfect for backpacking and travel. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , March 24, 2013

    Expensive but worth it

    I told myself "I'll never spend $600 on a tripod! How good could it be?" Well, when I was at a local photo store I lifted a Gitzo Mountaineer in one hand and the I already have in the other. The difference in weight was surprising. The Traveler is even a bit lighter. It's so much lighter than any aluminum tripod out there.For traveling the Traveler folds up to a bit over 20" with the legs folding up over the head. I have a Manfrotto 498RC2 Ball Head with Quick Release Replaces Manfrotto 488RC2 ballhead and unfortunately I have to remove it to fold the legs back. Not a big deal but a bit of a pain.If you carry a tripod with you hiking or just walking around town you'll quickly appreciate the weight savings this offers.

    Exceptional for what it is.

    I purchased this tripod for a recent international trip as I was traveling with only carry-on luggage and my other tripod is far too large to fit in such an arrangement. Knowing that this is a rather tiny unit, I didn't have particularly high hopes regarding overall stability, even considering the name brand. It turns out I was mostly wrong and this unit has done so much to impress me that I've yet to go out with my large tripod since obtaining this one. It works very well for me. It won't necessarily work very well for you, so please read on.I'm 5'11" and with the legs fully extended, the center column all the way up, with a Really Right Stuff BH-40 and a Nikon D600, the viewfinder sits maybe an inch below eye level. As far as I'm concerned, this is as close to perfect as I'm ever going to get from a tiny tripod. Yes, I'd much rather have a tripod that gets to eye level with no center column for the added stability, but that's clearly not going to happen with this... 5/5 kendalltristan - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    0 5/5 Timothy L. Boschen "Saddlebag Photography" (Sterling, Virginia United States) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: AFAITH® Professional SLR Camera Tripod Monopod & Ball Head Portable Compact Travel up to 35lbs (Electronics) This tripod comes from China and is a no-name brand. I was fairly sure I would be disappointed when it arrived. I had looked at several carbon fiber travel tripods but I was afraid it would crack under rough use. This no-name fits the bill. The mag-aluminum alloy is sturdy and holds my Canon 60D well. The ball is tight and turns smoothly. I am 6'2" and I can look through the eye piece without bending over. For the life of me, I cannot find anything bad to say about this tripod. For the money, it's a real good deal. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , March 24, 2014

    0 5/5 D. Hall (Seattle) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: AFAITH® Professional SLR Camera Tripod Monopod & Ball Head Portable Compact Travel up to 35lbs (Electronics) This tripod is similar to other reverse-folding tripods like others from Dolica, MeFoto, and 3-Legged Thing; but at a fraction of the price. It's not made of the lightest or strongest materials like some of the other brands, but you get what you pay for. That said, this is a stellar tripod that does the job and folds up compact and light. Another plus for me was that the ballhead is compatible with Peak Design's Capture Clip system. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , June 14, 2014

    More tripod than most people will ever need.

    0 5/5 kendalltristan - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Gitzo Series 3 Systematic 4 Section Long Tripod GT3542LS (Electronics) I purchased this to upgrade from a Manfrotto 055CXPRO3 as I've obtained larger lenses and so I could have something that will fit in my carry-on luggage if I absolutely need to bring a "big" tripod on a trip (I typically travel with a GT1542T). I should note that while it fits many carry-on bags, it can be somewhat awkward to pack so your mileage may vary in this regard. Anyway. this tripod is an absolute tank compared to my Manfrotto. I can hang from middle of it with no issues whatsoever. The largest lens I use with it is a 300mm f/2.8 and it's rock solid. I use it with a Really Right Stuff leveling base and BH-55, and when I need it a Wimberley Sidekick. The combination is excellent and I've yet to have any issues regarding stability, even in fairly rough conditions. Also I really like that Gitzo includes the foot accessories rather than charging extra for them. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , July 18, 2013

    My last tripod

    If you are reading this review, don't repeat my mistakes. Thom Hogan was right. I did not read his article on tripods until it was too late. Before I purchased this Gitzo tripod, I went through a couple of aluminum tripods (Manfrotto and Giottos) and they all have compromises on weight, stability and durability one way or the other. As soon as I got more involved in landscape photography, I began to realize that I needed an eye level tripod without a center column. The reason is stability. My older Manfrotto 190XPROB had shown its weakness when I was shooting the mountains in Eastern Sierra under some windy conditions. I could see pixel level blurriness from the minor vibration of the tripod due to the wind. Hooking my camera bag underneath the tripod was not a solution as the bag would swing around if not being rested on the ground. That was lesson #1. As the Manfrotto was quite heavy with the ball head mounted, I needed a lighter one for hiking and travel. Then came the Giottos... 5/5 E. Hung (USA) - See all my reviews, November 8, 2014

    Once in a lifetime purchase (hopefully)

    I bought this tripod 3 months ago after a lot of research and hand wringing (over the price). I have some friends who have Gitzo's and they are very impressive--great looks and quality throughout. My aluminum Manfrotto was no match. I took advantage of a $150 rebate and an incredible price on Amazon (the first figure began with a '7'), and bit. The hard part wasn't over. I needed a good ball head for this beauty, and of course I had to match my friends' who touted the Really Right Stuff BH-55. I use a Canon 7d with my longest lens being 70-200 f2.8, with a 1.4 converter, at times. I've used this setup several times over the past few months and it gets easier and easier to setup and use. The sharpness in many of my photos is noticeable, especially the telephoto images. I've also begun experimenting with long exposure photos using a 10-stop neutral density filter. These types of shots are impossible without a tripod. The 4 leg sections fold down to a very compact size, which I've... 5/5 Phil in MIdland (Midland, MI USA) - See all my reviews, July 7, 2013

    0 5/5 Sin City Stan - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Manfrotto MKCOMPACTLT-BK Compact Tripod (Black) (Electronics) I bought this tripod primarily for backpacking. Others have warned about this being only for small point & shoot cameras although it's rated for 3.3 Lbs. I have mounted a Canon 6D w/24-105 Zoom (26 Oz.) on this tripod and unless the center post is raised it's sturdy enough for me. This tripod is almost a pound lighter than my other compact tripod (Which is going up for sale.). A pound doesn't sound like much until you have to carry it up and down hills and mountains all day. The construction is what I expect from Manfrotto, it serves my needs and I'm happy with it. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , February 1, 2015

    Rapid Column: The center column locking collar above the tripod shoulder makes it easier to adjust the column quickly. Series 1 and above are built with an anti-rotation grooved center column for improved stability.
    ALR - A new Anti Leg Rotation system, which means the tripod can be opened in less than 15 seconds. Simply loosen all the twist locks on each leg at the same time, then pull the leg down and tighten the locks individually.
    Ground Level Set: This feature allows you to remove the center column to save weight and get the camera closer to the ground. Uses existing components: the upper disc with reversible 1/4 - 3/8 bolt and the column hook assembly.
    G-Lock: The Gitzo leg locking system has been completely redesigned in order to achieve a 20% increase in rigidity, faster operation and stronger, safer locking. G-Lock's special design also provides a "gravity lock" effect: the higher the load applied vertically to the leg, the stronger the lock.
    Hook: This built-in accessory allows you to hang a stabilizing weight (e.g. a full camera bag or a sand/water bag) from the bottom of the tripod center column. Useful with long heavy lenses, on uneven ground or in windy conditions.
