In Part 6 of a series of video clips, `ClickHerePhotography` gives tips on how to select the right tripod for various outdoor environments and conditions like snow, rain (hail and thunderstorms), mud, dirt (dust) and waterbodies (river,streams or oceans). It is important to use a sturdy tripod designed to withstand the elements. After using the tripod for the day, it is essential to clean it. For instance, sand or salt water will weardown the legs of the tripod if left for long periods of time. Although tripods will not last forever, with proper care, a tripod used even in rugged environments should last at least 10 years.
