Yes, we are still in the early days of photography. Don’t get me wrong, I think it’s great to still “try” new techniques, but don’t be afraid to try something new. The right technique is the most important thing. Based on my experience, I believe that using a tripod is admittedly probably the hardest step to take when starting out on your photography journey. The tripod isn’t the only tool you’ll need though, and like with any other technique there are several pieces of equipment that can help you get started and ready for your next trip up to the line.
