Manfrotto’s new tripod the ” Befree Advanced Alpha “, designed for α cameras from Sony, has easily become my favorite right hand man for all of my adventures.
When most people hear “Hawaii” they think of beaches. So my first stop the evening my Befree Advanced Alpha came in was one of my favorite sunset locations. Using this sturdy built and very stable tripod makes it easy to capture slow shutter shots of the ocean giving it that smoother look. I wasn’t worried at all sticking this tripod in the water, as it’s so stable in waves and wind.
Next stop WATERFALLS! Taking a normal photo of the waterfall is cool and all, but keeping it stable and adjusting that shutter speed just adds to the beauty of it. You can see on the right how smooth the pool gets and how the falls get that nice “milky” look. Heck even jump in it and add perspective to your shot. Go from selfie to self timer and the results are the highest. That is my number one reason for carrying a tripod and leads me to my next stop…. MOUNTAINS!
“Befree” is such a fitting name for this tripod. I say this because you can literally grab it and go on any adventure free to capture every and any shot you wish without relying on anyone else. Everyone has their own style or perspective that they envision their image as before capturing it. This is why even if I am hiking with other photographers I’ll bring my Befree Advanced Alpha. By bringing my tripod I can trust that the photo I take will come out exactly the way I want it to.
I capture 99.9% of my own experiences, and it couldn’t be done without a great and reliable companion: my Manfrotto Befree Advanced Alpha tripod. I hope you enjoyed seeing three major views of Hawaii . Now get up, embrace your tripod, and BEFREE!
