How to Get Better Portraits by Using a Tripod

In addition to being able to slow down the shutter, using a tripod like my waterproof Sirui W-2204 allows you to get in the water without worry of what it’ll do to your gear.

In my case, I like to set up my tripod on the beach as the tide is coming in, but with the waterproof construction, you can take a tripod like this into the middle of a stream and be totally fine as well.

If you set up your tripod in water, be sure to add weight to the center column hook to act as ballast. Though well-made tripods like my Sirui are supremely stable, it doesn’t hurt to add a little extra weight to ensure the tripod won’t go anywhere.
