I receive a few queries on how I took some photos from HDB corridor and I thought why not start a thread dedicating to this topic since this is quite a common question.
Taking landscapes/Cityscapes photos from HDB corridor is not as easy as it seemed. This is an area where it poses many challenges for our gears and this thread is intended for fellow photographers to share how you overcome these challenges.
I know many uses tripods with horizontal center column. This may be a viable option but I do find the reach kinda limited and may be quite unstable especially if your gears are heavy.
I hope fellow shooters will share your solutions to the above. I'll start with mine.
1. Manfrotto Super clamp
I believe this is also one of the widely adopted option.
Things you need:
i) Manfrotto Super Clamp
ii) Manfrotto 208 3/8-Inch Mounting Plate
iii) leveling base. This is optional but useful if you are attempting a panorama.
iv) Tripod head
2. Double Manfrotto Super clamp, this option will give you more reach.
i) 2 x Manfrotto Super Clamp
ii) dual sided 1/4 inch bolt - http://www.ebay.com.sg/itm/261696409...%3AMEBIDX%3AIT
iii) Tripod center column with base plate
iv) Tripod Head
Other options then i know:
Really Right Stuff Safari Clamp
Manfrotto Magic Arm
Table tripod if the parapet is wide enough.
