Platypod The Compact Traveling Tripod with Samantha Kennedy

Words by Samantha Kennedy - A Platypod Pro
Edited by Eryka Bagwell

"This image was taken at Jenny Lake in Grand Teton National Park.  I knew that one image wouldn't capture everything so I quickly setup my Platypod eXtreme (adjusting the spikes for a sturdy base) and Platyball Elite on one of the rocks along the shore."

"After I made sure that my camera was level (using the indicator on the back of the Platyball Elite), I took 9 images that I then merged together in Lightroom during post."

"I used my Nikon 7Zii with the 10 stop Cokin ND filter - camera settings were ISO64, 14mm, f/14 for 10 seconds."
