“The client wanted a straight on shot from the kitchen showing the dining and living area. We used the Platypod Extreme and the Platyball. These products give us the ability to place our camera in places we can’t put our tripod and the leveling system in the Platyball is SPOT ON! They have become an integral part of our kit.”

02 | Shooting differently at Llanberis with Dave Williams

Trying to shoot differently can sometimes be a challenge, but if we want to stand out amongst a crowd we really do need to come up with something. Shooting the same as everyone else is fine if the photo is for our own memories or for practice, but to sell a photo or to have it jump out in the crowd on social media it must hook people, showing something familiar in an unfamiliar way. I began by shooting on a tripod to get an elevated perspective, but that’s exactly what everyone else was doing. The still water was just like a mirror that morning. I had to mix things up and get a shot that everyone else didn’t already have. That was the moment I elected to employ tactic number one on my list. Everyone was shooting long exposure and using filters, so I looked around and asked, ‘is anyone shooting right now? I need to move in the shot for a moment.’ One guy responded saying, ‘just a moment… Ok I’m done.’ That’s when I took the opportunity to switch to a faster shutter speed and throw a rock into the water. Nobody else was set for it except me so I bagged my first unique shot right there.

03 | IN AN UNSTABLE WORLD, I REACH FOR MY EXTREME. Moose Peterson

Moose Peterson is no stranger to our Platypod Family of products, he is a friend and long time backer of many of our products. We have also featured his work in our blog, in the very recent past. We are inspired by his industry experience as well his ingenuity, which allows us to view nature in its most pure form.

Moose was one of our testers of the eXtreme prototypes before the Kickstarter campaign had been released. He was thrilled by the stability (on all surfaces) and rapid deployment that allowed him to quickly and effectively capture his wildlife subjects.
