Look Mom! No Hands Photography

Do you love to take pictures?  Have you ever found yourself in a situation where you wanted to use our camera on a tripod but didn’t have a solid place to put it?  I can’t tell you how many times I’ve been in that predicament.  Usually, we are outside or in a crowded room with no place to put a rickety tripod.  It’s no wonder I’m rarely seen in pictures taken with my camera.

Even if the situation doesn’t require a tripod for a timed photo shoot sometimes you just need a steady “hand”.  There have been times when I don’t want to use the flash and the object or person is perfectly still, but I can’t keep myself still enough to get a clear picture.  How frustrating!


Our friends over at GrabBagReviews.com have posted their experience with a tripod product called GorillaPod.  The cool thing is they are now running a contest through March 6, 2009 to win the GorillaPod for mobile devices like cell phones and Ipods.  Please visit their site for more details on how to enter to win.
