I don’t use tripods or gimbals nearly as often as I used to. Since I switched to Olympus, the vast majority of my work is either hand-held or on a monopod. The Olympus image stabilization eliminates the need for a tripod, most of the time.

But there are three cases when I still use tripods and gimbals.

1. During extended flight photography sessions
2. When photographing from a blind
3. When I am tired

On this date, 21 years ago, I decided to use this new technology called the Internet to share educational and inspirational tidbits about photography. I had enjoyed a lifetime of photography already – way back then. And I thought it would be cool to share what I had learned with others.
