Thanks for taking a look at my instructible! This is my Easy Folding Tri-pod which is great for making clearer pictures and isn't impossibly difficult to make. It also folds for easier storage and when opened locks itself in the open position automatically!
That's a bit more commercial than usual maybe a little background will explain better.....
I actually got this idea from another instructable in the photography section about how to make it appear that you were flying. It was cool and inspiring, so I got out my camera and being cheap I set it on the table with a timer...... you get the picture. Anyway it ended up that I turned the camera just a little making the editing mission impossible. So I built this tri-pod so I could make pictures like in the other instructable. Funny how things go sometimes.
Anyway shall we start?
Step 1: The Legs
Well as boring as it may be you got to start with structure. The legs are pretty simply built there can be more reinforcement in the legs if you prefer, but I was going for the least amount of pieces possible.
As far as the construction, you will need to start by creating half of the leg. I broke it down into thirds so it's easier to understand what it needs to look like. After you complete one side of the leg you need to snap in the blue rods that hold it together. Look at the image notes if you need reference about where they should be located.
After you finished this step, give yourself a pat on the back and repeat this step another two times!
