Snow Pod


Last week I was in the Sierras taking photos in the snow. One of the issues I have had with snow photography and using a tripod is the that the legs of the tripod sink in the snow and make for an unsteady tripod. My solution for this issue has been to leave all of the legs together and push straight down in the snow to get a sturdier mount in the snow. If the snow is hard on top and the legs do not sink then I can spread them out in the usual manner but if the snow is soft I either need to get snow shoes for my pod or just push straight down like I did in the photo above. Give it a try next time you are out and I think you will be happy with the results.

Happy Picture Taking!
