The family got me the perfect Christmas present this year it’s a gorillapod.
A gorillapod is a flexible tripod and is brilliant! You attach it to your camera and can either use it as a low tripod or wrap it around branches, fences or anything else! It’s just perfect for me as I didn’t want to bring a big tripod out with me and it wouldn’t be flexible. The is small and very manageable so great to take out and about.
The photo above was taken with the gorillapod very low to the ground, I can now get the dog’s perspective on life 😉
It’s also brilliant for slow shutter speed shots. I used to just sit the camera on the camera bag or try and hold it but used to shake it. Now I don’t have to worry 🙂
I’d recommend a gorillapod to anyone, they even do them for phones!
