John Shaw's Closeups in Nature

Creator: John Shaw | Photography - 1987

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 so cold when I'm using it in the winter.

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

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 shooting ...

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 Photography" teaches 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.

The Backpacker's Photography Handbook

Creator: Charles Campbell | Photography - 1994

Another excellent tripod is the Gitzo 224. Gitzos are expensive, but they are very well made and come with a lifetime warranty that makes them worthwhile investments. I like the fact that the 224's legs can be spread parallel to the ground .

    Amazing quality and light weight.

    I resisted spending the money for a Gitzo carbon fiber tripod for years. I'm now sorry I waited so long. Sure the cost is steep, and when you add $400 on top for a ball head of equal quality you end up well north of $1000 for the combo. Having used this now in combination with an Acratech GP ballhead I can assure you it is well worth its cost. The leg clamps open and close with no more than a quarter turn from open to fully locked. The finish on the carbon fiber legs is impeccable and the magnesium parts are of equal quality. There is no wobble or play in any part. Even the smallest bottom tubes are remarkably free of any flexing. The Ground Level Set feature on this tripod is pure genius! This allows you to easily remove the center column in under 30 seconds without any tools for very low to the ground shots. Reattaching the column is just as quick and easy. Rubber O rings inside all the leg clamps keep out dust and grit. I know purists don't like center column tripods for... 5/5 D. Rader (Kansas City, MO USA) - See all my reviews, January 12, 2015

    Lightweight tripod that you will want to bring with you

    This is a lightweight tripod that I do not hesitate to bring with me. I have this paired with the Acratech GP-S ballhead for a total weight of about four pounds. I will be taking this with me to Maui and carrying it on the back of my Lowepro Flipside 400 backpack. Due to it's low weight, the tripod is easy to maneuver. This makes extending and retracting the legs easy. One note of caution: Make sure to only slightly turn each of the individual rings that are used to unlock and lock a particular section of a leg. Loosening to much will result in a plastic piece falling out that is located inside the leg. It is not easy to insert this piece once it has fallen out.This is not an inexpensive tripod but this is tripod that you will actually use and take with you on your trips due to it's low weight. I have read stories of individuals who keep buying tripods because the tripod that was purchased was too heavy, not robust, etc. I previously had one of those tripods many... 5/5 Gerald (USA) - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?)

    Compact is Key

    4/5 bobb (San Francisco, CA United States) - See all my reviews This review is from: Gitzo G1026 Weekend Compact Performance Tripod (Electronics) While not the lightest but certainly is the most compact of a "real" tripod. I take it with me everywhere and stick it in my backpack. Some online reviewers don't recommend Gitzo for in-salt-water use because you must immediately disassemble and clean it, and cleaning this thing is no fun. Those with lever locks seem easier to setup but I wanted nothing that can snag when moving or stowing, and I wanted to be able to pull it out from my backpack with one hand.

    Gitzo, why irritate your customers

    4/5 Kurt - See all my reviews Verified Purchase(What's this?) This review is from: Gitzo GK2545T-82QD Series 2 Traveler Kit with GT2545T 4 Section Tripod & Head (Black) (Electronics) Like most everyone else, can't believe Gitzo charges ultimate premium dollars and doesn't include their cheap tripod level or weight hook. I ordered both separately for $15 - 20 each. Naturally, the Series 2 weight hook didn't fit (the screw is too small). What a pain. When you spend $1200 - $1300 on something, they can charge me a little more and include everything that fits properly. Also had to order their $80 bag separately. Of course, it's a great tripod. I love it. Far superior to all my others. So Gitzo, why irritate your customers and leave a bad impression over nickels and dimes?
