The Platypod Handle - Still Life Photography with Ellis Vener

Words by Eryka Bagwell

With the Launch of our newest Kickstarter campaign - The Platypod Handle a little over a week underway we've decided to reach out to some Platypod Pro's who have had the opportunity to test the early version of the handle. We wanted to get their initial thoughts on the Platypod Handle as well as seeing their unique perspectives and applications. 

Ellis Vener brings us up close and personal with a Bluebonnet flower stem in full bloom. Here, you'll see that he's mounted his camera on our Platyball Elite ball head and cleverly combined the Platypod Handle with the Platypod eXtreme (our newest tripod mount which replaced our previous tripod the Max) to mount lighting just beside his camera. 

For more unique ways to use your new Platypod Handle, join our Platypod Official Users Facebook Group.
