When getting deeper into the photography field, most photographers will equip themselves with other camera accessories to better improve the image quality of the taken pictures. These accessories include photo filters, camera adapters, camera tripods etc. These accessories are used regardless of the type of camera lenses used. They are used in conjunction with specific lenses to maximize the quality or the effect of the photo.
Tripod are mainly used when taking pictures with slow shutter speed. The stability and elevation offered by the tripod can greatly reduce distortion of the image. Perfect shot can be taken by placing the DSLR on the tripod.Some effects including star trailed images or blurred objects against a sharp background can be produced.
Another common usage of a tripod is when taking clear and sharp images at night. It is very challenging to take high quality photos just by holding the camera with bare hands with minimum support. Night photo taking usually require longer exposures at night.
