Hello everyone and welcome to Tripods For All. Photography has been a passion of mine ever since I was 14 yrs old and over the years I have met with numerous people with the same interest as mine.
I often found myself looking up on the internet on how to get better and better at photography. On the internet, I found a plethora of like-minded people who were ready to help. Now I believe is the time to give back to the community. Over the years, I have learned a lot about various genres of photography, like street, wildlife, macro ,etc. Each genre is a different form of art in itself. There are infinitely many directions one could move forward in photography. But having said that, a good tool is always essential for an artist as he never compromises on the tool when it comes to making a masterpiece. Having a good sturdy tripod is always essential whether you are into landscapes or wildlife or even street photography.
Growing up in India has its own limitations, you are often looked down upon for following your passion instead of taking the road that has always been taken. Nevertheless, I started out with an old Agfa film camera which belonged to my grandfather. I shot a few rolls just to try my hand at it.
Surprisingly the pictures turned out more beautiful than I expected. My father saw the potential in me and bought me my first DSLR on my next birthday, I was over the moon.
I began walking the streets with my newest friend and started capturing the very essence of Indian culture. I was only 16 at that time, when I published my first interview in a national magazine.
As I said before, sometimes you are looked down upon by others for being too good at something and that too at a small age.
So what would someone like me does ?
I carried on. Bought new equipment and spent hours on learning how to use them to improve myself. Certainly, I faced a lot of time management issues due to my academics but when you have faith in yourself and your work, you realise that anything can be achieved in any aspect of life, no matter the age.
CHOOSING EQUIPMENT CAN BE A DAUNTING TASK
The art of photography has changed dramatically in many aspects but the core essence is the same. It is still a form of art and certainly not a child’s play.
Each one of you out there with a camera deserves to have a proper tripod which is sometimes referred to as a camera’s best friend. Choosing to work with tripod can drastically improve your skills in many ways. I always say that going on a shoot with one of these three-legged beauties is a must. I understand that every person is at a different level and has various needs but fear not, there is a tripod for all kinds of needs and budgets here at TripodsforAll.
UNLOCK YOUR TRUE POTENTIAL
There is no point in practicing your art without proper guidance or tools. Do not waste time or procrastinate. Everyone has got the same number of hours in a day, its upto you how do you spend it. Tripods can serve a photographer for a lifetime if cared for properly. Do not hesitate in investing in a quality piece of equipment.
