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?)

    Excellent travel tripod

    I love my big Manfrotto tripod, but it's heavy to lug around on a hike, and kind of big to pack in a suitcase or carry on board when flying. This compact tripod is a good compromise in size and "heavy duty-ness" when you need to carry it for hours in the hills or out in the desert. The included carry case, with shoulder strap, is very handy if I haven't got anywhere left to tie it on my camera pack. It isn't as tall as my regular tripod, but I'm willing to live with that. I leave the big tripod at home more often now, or use both when I'm shooting with both normal and infrared cameras.Because of the light weight, it's easier to knock over if you bump into it, so you might want to consider attaching a sandbag if that's a concern for you.UPDATE 10 Nov 2013: Just wanted to add that I used this tripod recently during a landscape workshop in Yosemite National Park. I learned that you DO NOT want to use it with the center post fully extended if your shutter speed is... 5/5 Guy Ivie (Fallon NV USA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Great travel tripod

    0 5/5 Craig P. Donovan - See all my reviews, July 10, 2013

    Really works well

    0 4/5 stcroix2 "Keith & Diane" (Pullman, Wa) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) I have a Nikon D300s with a Nikkor 80-400mm lens out front - lots of weight. This tripod performed flawlessly in a recent trip to a National Wildlife Refuge and a Florida wetlands. I purchased it for the lightweight, compactness for air travel. I carried it aboard, with all the camera gear, which fit either in the overhead bin on the 757 or under my seat. It sets up quick, locks down stable and performed well. The only negative, are the feet, they are applied with a countersunk, yet exposed, screw. In the mud and dirt this is a trap for sticky stuff to adhere to the legs. I am sure a piece of Colorado Duct Tape would seal the feet, but I am a photographer not a boarder :)I like it. I would purchase it again, based upon a couple weeks use, and several hundred photos.The construction of the pads on the legs are hardly worth a full star deduct - so it is a four and a half star product, in my view. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews  Was this review helpful to you? , August 22, 2013
