Photo Studio and Photo Equipment Terms - T

Photo Studio and Photo Equipment Terms - T


Tripods are used for both motion and still photography to prevent camera movement and provide stability. They are especially necessary when slow-speed exposures are being made, or when telephoto lenses are used, as any camera movement while the shutter is open will produce a blurred image. In the same vein, they reduce camera shake, and thus are instrumental in achieving maximum sharpness. A tripod is also helpful in achieving precise framing of the image, or when more than one image is being made of the same scene, for example when bracketing the exposure. Use of a tripod may also allow for a more thoughtful approach to photography.

Tripod Head

Part of a tripod system that attaches the camera to the tripod legs, and allows the orientation of the device to be manipulated or locked down. It can allow to pan, tilt and rotate.


Feature of cameras capable of measuring light levels in a scene through their taking lenses, as opposed to a separate metering window. This information can then be used to select a proper exposure (average luminance), and control the amount of light emitted by a flash connected to the camera.

Translucent brolly

Light modifier of translucent white. Used in portrait and product photographies to soften and even the light.

Trike board

Used for shake-free tracking shots at ground level with DSLR, camcorder, etc.

Tripod wheels
