I’ve read too many lists online of “traveling photographer tips” that don’t actually appear to be written by actual photographers. Some things work in the real world, others simply do not.

When Danny Lenihan CEO of 3 Legged Thing, comes into our town, we can’t help but make a informational video for the world to see. In this video we break down the X1.1 Brian and show just how versatile this tripod really is. You can’t take life too seriously.

Gear:30! We have the Tripod Tote Universal Tripod Shelf from Essential Photo Gear.
