After a few shootings at night, I realise that it's almost essential to have a tripod. I'm thinking of getting one. But what should I look for in a tripod?
Should it be heavy? So that it has better stability. Or should it be light so that it can be carried around easily? Sometimes I see photographers on the street carrying a tripod around.... & I feel pity for them. It looks so bulky & troublesome to carry around. But yet it is almost a must for night shots. Isn't there a more compact which is juz as good?
