This Tripod Substitute Has LOMO-Style!

12

You need a tripod but don't have enough money to buy one? Here's a Quickie Tipster for all of you Lomoholics.

Those of you, who makes long-time-exposures, know that you sometimes just need a tripod. But that’s not the only way to take pictures without blurring.

All you have to take are these things:

  • a small bag
  • a little bit of cat-litter, or maybe beans or peas
  • maybe some tape
  • and of course your camera

And here we go. Just put some litter (or beans) into the bag. Close it and that’s it.

You now can put your sack on almost everything. Put it on stones or on some twicks and your camera on it.

Now you can take pictures of yourself or do some long-time-exposures without blurring.

I hope you’ll have fun doing this craft. And you’ll go out in the wild-world and take some pictures without blurring.

Have fun yours beatboulette
