1. Phone Tripod
If you’ve jumped on the popsocket bandwagon already, you’re well aware of how practical this little smartphone accessory can be, especially when keeping your phone steady for that picture-perfect selfie. However, you find your arm is getting tired, it may be time to get your hands on a smartphone stand. These phone tripods don’t cost much and can guarantee a steady shot, since they reduce the amount of motion blur. A tripod, like the popular Manfrotto Pixi, is ideal for long-exposure photography, which is when the shutter speed is slowed down. This technique is used to create light trails, smooth out flowing liquids, and better expose images without increasing the ISO. And with the right tripod, you can get even more creative. Octopus tripods, like the Joby GripTight GorillaPod, allow you to attach your smartphone to just about anything and get shots from just about every angle.
