DayTrip's Day Out

Our tiny tripod, the DayTrip, has a max height of two feet, but that doesn't mean you're limited when it comes to needing stability at a higher height. You can get creative when you're out and about and position the DayTrip on everyday objects while taking photographs for a different perspective. We took two of our DayTrips to Kensico Dam the other day and were able to utilize our surroundings to get some pretty neat shots.

A park bench, for example, is a great surface to place the DayTrip on to get photographs from a higher angle or take selfies like shown above. Use an app like 'TimerCam' or 'Camera Timer!' to get a self-timer app on your iPhone and snap away!

Using a stable and level surface, like a picnic table, can help achieve added height as well. The DayTrip's rubber feet ensure that it won't slip and slide about once positioned which is vital when it comes to longer exposures.

A brick wall like the one shown above can be used as a creative tool in your photographs and video. The DayTrip has three different leg angles and two leg sections that can be loosened and tightened to achieve the positioning you need.

Those different leg angles also come in handy when shooting on stairs and other unleveled playing fields.
