Technical Aspects to Consider with Victoria Pavlov-White

Words and Photos by Victoria Pavlov-White - A Platypod Pro
Edited by Eryka Bagwell

"Usually, I begin working on my shots long before assembling my gear in the studio. For me, the idea behind the product I plan to shoot is equally as important as the technical aspects, composition, lighting, and angle. I have a particular fondness for microphotography, which is also appreciated by my clients, leading me to work with microphotography very often. In this genre, as with any other type of photography, achieving the right lighting and camera angle is paramount."

"The equipment I use includes a Nikon Z6(2), Westcott Rapid Box Switch Octa-M, Replica Surfaces, V-Flats Foldable V-Flat, and Platypod. The Platypod, in particular, provides me with precise angles and positions for my camera, which is where conventional tripods often fall short. Lightweight and versatile, the Platypod can be transported anywhere and mounted onto anything. The combination of the Platypod Ultra and Platyball Elite creates a powerful tool that I can bring along and utilize in any location."
