Without knowing the make and model of the tripod and the type of the camera, I can only be general/
The camera may be too heavy for the tripod head. Heads are rated to hold so much weight. If the camera/lens combo is too heavy for the head. it will tip forward. Many department store grade tripods can handle only light cameras.
The locking mechanism may be damaged/broken.
If you need more info, please repost the question, specifying the make and model of the tripod and the type of the camera. If it takes interchangeable lenses, also include the make and model of the lens.
Tripod quick mount plates (the part that is secured to the camera) are specific to tripod manufacturer. A tripod without a mating mounting plate is pretty much worthless as there is no way to mount the camera to it.
You will need to contact the manufacturer (or a reputable camera store) and provide the model of your tripod and the size of the threaded mount in you camera - most are either 1/4" or 3/8".
Any good camera store should have a selection of tripod heads. By "camera store" I do not mean the camera department of a department store. Without knowing what part of the world you're in I can't recommend any stores in your area. Two online choices are Adorama and B&H.
There are some brands of tripods that are made for the retailer and the name is licensed, so the name brand does not support or stock repair parts. Especially if the tripod is an inexpensive one.Because of the model and make of you tripod, I would recommend you throw it out and buy another one.In my opinion Slik and Manfrotto are two very good ones.Slik for the lesser expensive and Manfrotto for the more durable, expensive, parts are almost always available unless is it really old tripod.Find some Manfrotto tripods at:www.BogenTripodParts.com
At nights you should careful at these points.
1. If you take pictures when the camera is on your hands, ISO number of the camera must be increased to higher numbers. This lets the light come in to the lens easily.
2. If it is possible, a tripod is highly recommended to use. If a tripod is used, at that time,the best picture can be taken.
3. Hand Shake resistance speciality of the camera must be used.
4. Flash must be used. But with no flash and using tripod will give you the best results. If there is an action in the frame flash must be used.
5. While using tripod the best pictures can only be taken with self-timer.
Your tripod is a K-Mart brand item and it will fit any camera but it's clearly missing the quick-release foot which most tripods have these days. This part screws to the bottom of the camera and enables the camera to be quickly attached and removed from the tripod.
Unfortunately there is no standard foot shared between manufacturers and most tripod manufacturers don't even have a standard design foot which fits all models in their range.
