Join Justin Reznick for an in-depth discussion in this video Composing a shot of the Frank Gehry BP bridge, part of Architectural Photography in Chicago: A Fine Art Approach.
- Now, having scouted this location,…I realized that my normal tripod wasn't going to work.…And handholding wasn't going to work either,…because I want my lens so close…to these incredible steel plates,…that it's going to be a focal blend.…So I needed some sort of stability ideally.…Now I could handhold if I had to,…but I have an ace in the hole in my bag,…and that's this Joby GorillaPod.…Super small, very flexible.…It's great for an architechture shoot,…because you never know when…you might need to stabilize on a railing, or a staircase.…
Here it's just the edge of the bridge.…I'm going to let go gently,…and you'll see that I do have stability.…Having said that, you'll notice,…the straps around my wrist,…and unless I'm shooting I'm hanging on.…But it's a great little tool to have.…I also had to take my ball head…and switch it from my Gitzo tripod to the GorillaPod.…And I had to add a little 3/8 to 1/4 inch screw.…So that what was a great little tool to have with me.…I've been in a situation where I did that,…and I did not have that tool.…
