How To Create Iconic Nightscapes – Part 3 of a series by David Akoubian

SIRUI PRO David Akoubian shares his insights and techniques: More great images and a reminder

tree-and-milky-way-051416a-copy

To make these image takes patience, dedication and clear skies. And being in the right place at the right time doesn’t hurt either!

balanced-rock-milky-way-051416d-copy

But most importantly, you must keep this in mind: No night exposure can be achieved without a solid base under your camera. I only shoot with my Sirui N-3204X Carbon Fiber tripod and Sirui K-30X Ball Head. It gives me the confidence to shoot without a worry of camera drift or shake of any kind.

An added bonus is that on the next day, with very little effort, I can switch out the ball head for my Sirui PH-20 Gimbal Head and start shooting birds with the same confidence of a steady base…but that is a discussion for another day…

How To Create Iconic Nightscapes – Part 2 of a series by David Akoubian

SIRUI PRO David Akoubian shares his insights and techniques: Recommended equipment

bonzai-tree-and-milky-way-070916c-copy

My “go to” tripod for this work is the Sirui N-3204X Carbon Fiber tripod with the Sirui K-30X Ball Head attached. The light weight and compact design let me hike to get to my destinations, often a mile or so from my car, without being a distraction and allowing me to focus on the trail.

ST2005-shortcolI usually remove the center column and work with the short center column, allowing me to get down low to the ground to shoot as well.

 

When I set up my shots I never worry about the camera drifting during the long exposures. Why? Once I tighten the Sirui K-30X Ball Head, I know it is there to stay until I loosen it. This is the most common problem I see with other shooters, their camera moving during the exposure.k-30x-angle-view

I know once I am set, the K-30X allows me to focus on the composition of the image as well as add light painting when the image needs that extra something to make a good picture into a great one!

How To Create Iconic Nightscapes – Part 1 of a series by David Akoubian

SIRUI PRO David Akoubian shares his insights and techniques: Basic Requirements

milky-way-and-grafton-070716a-copy

With the advancements in digital photography, shooting the Milky Way and night skies is becoming more popular.

A nice wide angle lens on a digital camera using a basic starting formula of ISO 3200, 30 seconds in Manual Mode, manual focus set just shy of infinity, and white balance set around 3150K, will give you some really nice images. A cable release or self-timer to trigger the shutter will help to achieve a nice image.

Beyond a camera and proper settings, the most important part of the equation to achieving beautiful night sky images…a sturdy tripod is required. I shoot the night sky in locations that not only require me to have a rock steady base, but often is at weird angles since I am shooting rock formations or trees in the background. And I’m often lying flat on the ground to shoot.

I put all of my faith in shooting on my Sirui N-3204X Carbon Fiber tripod when I am shooting the night sky.

SIRUI Waterproof Tripods

New SIRUI W Series Waterproof Tripods. Water? Sand? Dirt? Bring it on!

Screen Shot 2016-06-23 at 10.32.53 PM 

Outdoor photographers and videographers who often battle the elements will love the revolutionary new SIRUI W Series Waterproof (and sandproof!) tripods. While most tripods warn against use in or near water and sand, the W Series welcomes it!

The SIRUI-designed Waterproof Sealing System (WPS) has a series of waterproof “O” rings that prevent water from seeping into the tripod leg tubes and locks, which would normally cause damage. The rubber locking components firmly grasp the legs without any gap when they are tightly locked, preventing water, sand, dust or small particles from entering the legs or the locking system. This waterproof (not just water resistant) and sandproof system enables safe and confident shooting in extreme environmental conditions (also ideal for use with spotting scopes and binoculars). Just select the height you need, lock the legs and you’re ready to go!

Equally impressive is SIRUI’s ability to extend and collapse the waterproof legs as smoothly as their standard models. And with 1/2-twist leg locks, setup and break down is fast and easy. Twist-locks are simple in design, easy to operate and easy to maintain. W leg locksScreen Shot 2016-07-05 at 11.40.39 PMUsing the highest quality materials and precisely manufactured leg tubes lets SIRUI achieve uncompromising stability. The SIRUI W-2204 extends up to an impressive 70.9” — essential for use in deeper water and keeping splashes and spray away from your gear — vital when shooting in deeper water or to keep your equipment away from splashes and salt spray – while folding down to only 20.5”. It weighs just 3.7 lbs., yet supports up to 39.7 lbs. solidly and securely, thanks to its 10-layers of 100% Carbon Fiber.

 

Screen Shot 2016-07-05 at 9.52.39 PM

 

For speed and convenience, the redesigned Leg Angle Lock mechanisms make adjustments faster and easier than ever before. Push the lock and it stays open until you select the desired position. Using it is extremely convenient, even with wet or gloved hands! The slip-resistant rubber feet can be replaced with stainless steel spikes (included) for added grip and stability.

A bubble level is also built in for fast horizontal alignment.

One of the tripod legs converts into a waterproof monopod — ideal when a tripod is not allowed or when you’re shooting in tight spaces — and the center column can be attached for increased height.

A hook on the bottom of the center column can Screen Shot 2016-07-05 at 11.21.54 PMhold a weight bag to further secure the tripod’s position, and the split center column makes changing from a standard center column to short center column fast and easy.

The SIRUI W Series tripod’s unique leg mechanism lets you invert the legs 180° for compact storage and easy transport.

 

6 yr stickerSIRUI W tripods come with a SIRUI USA 6-year warranty, are available in Series 1 & 2, economical aluminum or lightweight Carbon Fiber, and include a custom padded case. Price range is $199.94 – $399.94. For more information on the full line of Sirui products, please go to http://www.sirui.com or check our Facebook site at www.facebook.com/SiruiProfessionalTripods.

SIRUI L-20S – Professional Tilt/pan Monopod Head

A monopod is a very valuable tool for photographers. It allows you to shoot with long telephoto lenses that are impossible to hand hold and lets you shoot in low-light situations without having to greatly increase the ISO of your camera.

P-326crop
However, to get the most from your monopod, you need a head that will provide smooth tilting action, high load capacity and a solid locking mechanism. Look no further than the new SIRUI L-20S Monopod Tilt Head!

Sirui L-20S Tilt/pan Monopod Head
L-20S 90° tiltWith the ability to hold up to 55.1 lb. (25 kg.), the SIRUI L-20S Monopod Tilt/pan Head can be used with large, fast telephoto and zoom lenses for sports and fast moving action situations!

The SIRUI L-20S is a very rugged, stable, compact head that makes shooting with any monopod easy and convenient. The large tilt lock knob and calibrated tilt scale make handling and adjustments fast and repeatable.

L-20S QR plate slidingThe patented, SIRUI designed Dual Safety Lock Platform and SIRUI Quick Release Plate (included) prevent the camera from accidentally sliding off of the monopod head, when the quick release clamp is slightly loosened. It offers superior locking performance and reliability. Most Arca-compatible quick release plates can be used on the L-20S (Note: safety lock design not available from other brands).

sirui_l_20s w_plate removed on side

The SIRUI L-20S Tilt/pan Monopod Head can be attached onto monopods or tripods with 3/8 inch mounting screws.

If you need to rotate the Quick Release Platform 90° – when using L-Brackets, camera specific Quick Release Plates or for creative control – the SIRUI L-20S has your solution! Simply unscrew the QR Platform, lift and turn the Platform 90° and re-tighten the screw. Fast, easy and convenient!

Sirui L-20S Tilt/pan Monopod Head

When you shoot with heavier equipment – super telephoto lenses, Pro camera bodies – that’s when the heavy-duty SIRUI L-20S really shines! Its larger build handles the biggest lenses with ease.

And as an added bonus, the SIRUI L-20S has a panning base, so you can smoothly and easily follow the action – whether you’re using a tripod or monopod.
