    Carrying your tripod in the field doesn’t have to be a pain. Here, we show you how to transport your kit without doing yourself a damage

    Lugging your tripod over field and glen between suitable shooting locations is tedious. Taking your camera off your tripod and packing it away in its holdall may seem like the safest option, but as light and scenery changes, picture taking opportunities can rear up out of nowhere. Having your gear ready to rumble will encourage you to take that award-winning shot.

    1. Over the shoulder

    The best way between short stops in the field. Ready to rock and roll without messing around for every composition.

    2. One hand carry

    Excellent for longer jaunts, or in cities where tripods are a menace. Angle the lens upwards to prevent knocks.

    3. Hands free

    Tackle rough terrain by tucking the tripod underneath your backpacks front straps. Sit the lens on your shoulder.
