On The Horizon
01 | HOW 17 ARTISTS USE THEIR PLATYPODS
In this blog post excerpt, Skip Cohen recently highlighted a couple of educational videos from Platypod inventor Dr. T. demonstrating the many possibilities Platypod brings to the world of landscape photography. In the videos, the work of seventeen artists are shared as they use their Platypod gear.
From Skip Cohen: “Over the last few months, Dr. T, Platypod’s inventor, founder, and owner, has done two terrific programs as part of Kelby Media’s Landscape and Flash Conferences. I wanted to post both videos so you could enjoy the images he shared during each presentation.”
02 | A WINDOW OF NATURE WITH CHAMIRA YOUNG
“The overall feature I love about the Platypod is its compact versatility. Where a traditional tripod can be bulky and down-
right inconvenient in certain situations, my Playtpod lends itself to a wide variety of locations without detracting
from the experience.
In particular, it comes in handy when I go out for walks. Recently I traveled all of fi fteen minutes from my house to a local park that’s known for its great views and active wildlife. Before leaving the house, I made sure to grab my camera and Platypod Max.
There was a particular spot that was covered in trees and brush, and opened up to the lake. It was like peeking into a “window of nature” as I like to musingly think of it. On past walks, I’d crouch down and peek into the window of branches, noticing how picturesque it was and making a mental note to make an art piece out of it one day.”
