Platyball - REMARKABLE

Words and photos by Skip Cohen
Recently I got out early in the morning for some shooting. Although a little more blue sky would have been nice, the Platyball (pre-production sample) was amazingly helpful. I know my setup shot only had the horizontal leveled, but that's what I wanted - it's so accurate. I never even bothered with the in-camera level. Check out the setup shot below, as well as the final image.
