I like taking photos and I really enjoy to try out all interesting tools that can help me to improve my mobile photography skills.
Last time I showed you what’s inside my Picker Kit. Today we are going to see what you can do with the Joby GripTight GorillaPod and your creativity!
This tool is fantastic for images taken indoors, like in my mini-studio, and very useful outside when you might have low light conditions.
Let’s start with the first situation where I have used some very old dictionaries found in an old box full of stuff in my garage. When I take a picture I look around a lot because from ordinary things you can take out simplicity and still get a nice shot.
I used my studio, I set lights and I found the space to try out my tripod and I started shooting. I haven’t used any kind of app for editing, I just wanted to make a pure image of still life and then I caught the subject as it was.
Making these type of pictures is something simple. The good thing on having this tripod is that your hand doesn’t shake during the shooting and you also can use your headphones to be more secure during your production. By doing this, you can decrease the shutter speed if needed.
The Joby Grip Gorilla Pod Tight is also suitable for all type of devices and is very flexible. Outdoors, you can hook up your tripod somewhere (for example on a tree, pole, etc). That can be very useful, like in my case, where that allowed me to make a photo at 2 and half meters from ground.
When I hang around my city and sometimes I have low light conditions I need this tool.
Street and public space are very fascinating at night and I normally shoot my photo but I also use apps that allow me to set shutter speed.
There are many apps the can help you to improve your final results while you are shooting. One of this is Manual. Very easy and professional for who still wants to taste the traditional photography where every element like lights, shutter speed, contrast must be adapted before shooting.

Once you use it, you will notice the difference and you are going to spend hours to find a nice spot where to enjoy mobile photography!
