If I had to recommend an accessory to start you, it would certainly be a tripod. Once you have your camera and your objective, and you want to continue moving forward, taking steps in this world of photography, you wonder what to acquire, that if a flash, that if a backpack, a lens that resuscitates your camera , or a  filter that of vidilla … The truth is that well, without knowing it is difficult to decide, but for that we are in the blog, to give you a cable.


Although I recommend you start to complete the equipment for a tripod, as this is in taste, I tell you what you can do with it so you can make the decision for you 

    • Long exposure photography: silky effect , lightpainting, night photography …
    • Photograph in low light conditions.
    • Get more sharpness .
    • Self portrait. And it is not only because of the fact of portraying you, but also because it is often difficult to find unsuspecting patients with enough patience for our long exercise sessions, so who better than you to become a model and, for that, you need the tripod irremediably ;).
    • Photographs in sequence: there are also those who call them multiexposition, these are the images in which the same person appears in different positions and places.
    • Bracketing or bracketing. Something that sounds too difficult to pronounce seems too complex to execute, but that’s not the case at all. If you read this article you will see all the possibilities it offers and how simple it is;).
    • Time lapse. Can you imagine watching the sun set in quick motion? You can achieve it with this technique.
  • Capture the movement. Would you like to achieve a photograph similar to the following? Well, you have no choice but to use a tripod
Capture motion


Although the tripod that your SLR camera would like to have would probably exceed 100 euros, or even 200, you should not deprive yourself of one if your budget is smaller. There are good tripods for much less and they can fulfill the functions you need.

If you are not professional, you do not have a camera of excessive weight, or large telephoto lenses like the ones you see to paparazzi, to give some examples, it is normal for you to use a normal tripod, to help you hold your camera while you practice .

And if you need something else later, then take another step. But throwing yourself directly to a tripod of 2oo euros or more this first is like throwing yourself to buy the most expensive camera (professional level) when you’re not going to use even half of its features. And stay half life saving to achieve one of those while the desire to take pictures goes overboard, it is not a plan either. Better start where one can

Today I bring you a sample of very decent tripods for less than 100 euros, also for all budgets. Do you want to see them?
