Tip of the Day: Let the Gear do the Work

The Set Up The ResultPhotographer Chris Evans recently posted a link to some great squirrel close-ups on the PopPhoto Forums. The catch? He didn’t take the shots, he used a Gorillapod and the camera’s timer to get close to the animals without actually being there (the camera was timed to take a photo every minute). Pretty smart, and the results aren’t bad either.
