Tripping up on tripods
As part of the ongoing Vimeo video school series, the Vimeo team is giving easy to use instruction for beginner to professional photographers.
“Monopods are handy in lot of situations where bringing a tripod would be too cumbersome or heavy,” said Daniel Hayek at Vimeo. “Since they are generally smaller and lighter you can also quickly change where the camera is positioned. In fact, it’s not uncommon for wedding videographers to use monopods instead of tripods. The smaller footprint and lighter weight helps them maneuver around crowds and quickly get into the right postion. Additionally some locations have restrictions on tripods but will allow monopods, just something to keep in mind when you make your shooting plans.”
It’s interesting to see not only editing tactics but to learn that a monopod can be made out of string and a small weight device. Genius!
