01 | IN THE MOOD FOR FOOD WITH LARRY TIEFENBRUNN

“As you probably know by now, the hottest new item in the Platypod family is our new Mini Super Clamp. People are grabbing them by the handful. Why? If you are doing macro, food or product photography, you never have enough hands to hold up the things that you need such as mirrors, reflectors, branches, string and wire to suspend the object, etc.

As soon as I received our first shipment of mini clamps, I wanted to try it out myself.

That way no one would have to come in on a day off to support the photo shoot. If you have the option to say no and only work in uninterrupted times, do so. I didn’t. And it was Platypod to the rescue!”
