Use of Tripod, grips, and holds in digital photography

There are various attachments or holds in picture taking that can enhance the quality of a picture. Whether it be a hold, grip, or tripod all can be relatively soothing for the character, or sharpness of the picture.

Tripod

When taking pictures the subject is most likely going to be the main focus and have a sharp picture of the subject is going to be the clear. For example its easier to focus on the subject with a tripod rather than the background. However sometimes a blurred subject is wanted to give off an illusion of movement. To contradict if using freestyle camera shake is a huge problem that makes everything blurry. The advantages and disadvantage of using a tripod is that it slows the user down, either slowing the person to get a perfect shot, or completely missing a shot.When choosing your very own tripod its recommended to buy a more expensive sturdier model, they do not come too cheap and they will last quite a while. The type of tripod depends on the scenario, if inside for a photo shoot a more heavier version is okay since there is not too many movement of the tripod. When the user goes off for a hike or camp even to the city, a more lightweight tripod would be more suitable. Again tripods vary in various heights, to not overpay choose wisely which tripod is best for the job trying to be done. A plethora of tripods can be found here and choose with precaution to your necessity’s.

Grips

Depending on the actual camera, if a DSLR the camera is already bulky enough to draw away from an attachment called a battery grip. Essentially what a battery grip does is that it gives an extended battery life in some cases, and it provides an extra grip for the user. Its a matter of preference on the person to use such an attachment on a heavy duty camera. However is is recommended by Tested.com to use the attachment when also using a longer heavier lenses to make it more easier for the user. Some say that the added extended battery life and versatility is great but the extra weight is a turn off, it all depends on the product.

Holds

There are a variety of ways to hold a camera, some are completely wrong and some are helpful for the shakiness. When standing up have elbows against chest, left hand under the lenses (shotgun), and legs open for a portrait or landscape. When sitting down using your knees to support the camera to reduce shakes is a great way to manipulate your body for your own advantage.
