Question about Photography
I brought the tripod second hand. All parts seem to be there. But I cant figure out how to move it into portrait view.
On the top section of the tripod where the camera sits there are three adjusters that unscrew to loosen and screw in to tighten. There are Two 'Twist' nuts and One longer silver and black handle.
The long handle when twisted adjusts the Up/down angle.
The twist nut that is positioned lower down controls the left/right movement.
The twist nut you are looking for is the one positioned at the highest point. When loosened it will tilt between portrait and landscape.
Sometimes if the tripod has a 'quick release' plate the camera can be accidentally mounted a quarter turn too far left or right. This means the 'portrait' adjuster can be mistaken for the Up/down adjuster.
