Watch this short tutorial as nature photographer Steve Perry from Backcountry Gallery¬†describes his techniques for getting a wide range of motion with a long lens and tripod and capturing sharp photographs without the tripod and gimbal completely “locked down.”

As Perry notes, in wildlife photography you want to be able to adjust on the fly and not be limited in your movement due to your long lens and tripod. Some photographers choose to just ditch the tripod altogether and go hand-held, but Perry discusses a very useful alternative to going hand-held.
