John Shaw's closeups in nature

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

These tripods are the Slik M322 on left and the Gitzo 320 with a Bogen 3047 head on right. Both tripods offer low- level ground positioning. I've taped the legs of my Gitzo to keep my hands from getting ...

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. It's good quality construction and should last years... 5/5 Fred (northern VA) - See all my reviews I told myself "I'll never spend $600 on a tripod! How good could it be?"

    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?)

    compared to other Gitzo

    0 4/5 Bob D. - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Gitzo GT3542L Mountaineer Tripod Ser.3 4S Long (Black) (Electronics) Compared to Ser 2 GT2542LS, which I like better. Pros: heavier tubing. Easy adjust hight with center column (important feature for 4X5 field camera). Seems as solid as Ser 2. Open (non extended) about eye level for me (6'2"),(so is Ser 2, LS). Con: Heavier than Ser 2 and collapsed length no shorter than Ser 2. Feet on this are slick and slide on hardwood/tile floors, making this less stable overall. Also, Ser 2 feet have built in spikes, while with this one, the are tool applied option. Mounitng plate smaller: The RRR BH-55 head "hangs over". Large plate on Ser 2 a stability plus, I think. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , July 18, 2014

    feature rich tripod!

    0 5/5 Kirk (IL, USA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Dolica AX620B100 62-Inch Proline Tripod and Ball Head (Camera) It is made out of aluminum. Light enough to carry around the whole day yet still very sturdy. The aluminum ball head actually performs well. Once you've got the desired angle and lock it in place, the camera will stay on that angle until you release the lock unlike my 20 usd tripod. Im using a d80 with 18-270mm lens attached. That's about 1.2kg weight. The tripod is rated by the manufacturer to handle up to 13 lbs of equipment. Other features are a quick release plate, 2 bubble levels ( one on the head and the other on the legs), user replaceable aluminum tripod head, a threaded weight hook and spiked feet. The tripod can also converted so you can take macro shots. The legs can be locked in position independent of one another. With all these features plus great performance, this tripod is a steal!One minor hiccup, the plastic on the leg clamps, while not cheap, isnt top of the line. But they get the job done so it a no issue for me 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , January 26, 2009

    Great Tripod for the Price

    If you're a professional photographer, go look at Manfrotto or some of the other high end brands. If you're an amateur photographer looking for a good tripod that won't cut into your lens budget, then look no further.The ball head is nice, but is sometimes a bit unwieldy, and difficult to set. Sometimes you have to crank down the tightening nut a lot to get it to stay. The snaps that extend the legs are plastic feel cheap, but what can you expect from such an inexpensive tripod?On the good side, you are getting a ball head tripod, with legs that can be extended past their typical angle. They also have nice padding on them which is great in the Northern climates when you have to work without gloves. The tips of the legs can be rotated to reveal spikes for difficult terrain, and there's two bubble levels: one on the legs of the tripod, and one on the actual ball head. There's also a compass, if you need that utility. Even with all that, you still get a pretty... 4/5 R. Kanzig - See all my reviews, April 12, 2009

    0 3/5 irJIM (northern, CA USA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Dolica AX620B100 62-Inch Proline Tripod and Ball Head (Camera) Great tripod with performance legs that spread low and wide for macro work for the price. The quick release plate, quick flip lever leg release and lock, bubble levers, and a good tripod case besides being light and compact is great. The weak area for this tripod is the weak strength of the legs when fully extended, it has too much play but great for P&S digitals O.K. for small dSLR with small lens. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , June 22, 2009

    Gitzo

    Amazingly light and solid

    Legs unlock and lock with ease and precision. One barely has to snug them and they lock in place. All four segments can be released at the same time making setup really fast. Fit and finish is superb. I use an Acratech GP Ball head which is a very good fit for this tripod but doesn't quite let the legs close completely. This has not proved to be a problem as I only fold the legs over the head when packing for flights and need the shortest possible length. The only negative found is that the tip covers on the legs will slip occasionally on hardwood floors. This is more of minor annoyance than a problem. My old tripod was the Manfrotto 190 CX PRO B which costs less than half as much and worked very well. The Gitzo weighs about a pound less and was definitely worth the upgrade. The old saw about the best tripod is the one you have with you is true and with the 1544t at 3.1 lbs with head, you will have no reason not to have it with you.

    Gitzo has taken us back to the 1541T!!!

    So I was on the fence when the 1541T came out a few years back and never got it. Instead I got the 1550T because I thought I would prefer it's smaller size. What I did not take in to consideration was the 5 sections vs 4 on the 1541T. In any case, I got tired of extending the 5 sections every time and I didn't feel that the 5 sections of the 1550T were particularly stable for my large DSLR so I went searching again... I looked at the 1542T but was put off by the center column as it was designed differently so that if you had a head attached and closed the legs, the head would be sticking out the top. I'm happy to say that with the 1541T, Gitzo redesigned the center column to make it more like the 1541T so that when you close the legs, the legs surround the head. The 1544T is a pretty good fit with my Acratech GP-ss! It's not perfect as the legs don't fully close but it's good enough for me at this point. I could have gotten a Markins Q3t or something smaller than my GP-ss but I... 5/5 gadget-o-holic (The Windy City) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)
