noob question. just came back with my first night shot after initial fumbling with my tripod.
do you release the latches to let the legs slide down? if yes, one leg at a time or one section at a time? if one section at the time, is it the upper or lower section first?
Do you leave the tripod on the ground, release all the latches, and "pull" the tripod up?
Do you hold your tripod horizontally, release the latches, and pull out the legs? if yes, again, the upper section first or lower, or by one leg at a time?
Am i just being anal
