    Our professional photographer's recommended gear: hotshoe spirit level

    Spirit level
    Paul’s hotshoe spirit level doesn’t just help to keep horizons straight, it also helps him monitor vibrations. If the liquid’s not perfectly still, he won’t shoot a thing. You can pick one up for around £20 at your local camera store.

     

    Our professional photographer's recommended gear: remote release

    Remote release
    A tripod alone is not enough for Paul. He also uses a cable release and sets his DSLR to its custom Mirror Lockup mode to cut out vibrations. 
A cable release like this will set you back around £40.

     

    Our professional photographer's recommended gear: tilt-shift lens

    Tilt-shift lens
    Ordinary lenses can struggle with perspective when taking building shots, so Paul uses a Tilt & Shift lens. Unlike normal lenses, these can be ‘shifted’ in relationship to a camera’s sensor to record subjects such as high buildings more accurately. They cost around £850 each.
