Howdy. I've been doing amateur photography for a number of years but have only started using a tripod fairly recently (on any consistent basis.) I usually like to move around a lot when I'm taking pictures for the sake of framing and composition. My question is this: How do you personally determine the placement of your tripod? Do you just use your eyes to guesstimate the best position? Do you keep the camera attached and move the camera+tripod around to find suitable framing? Do you detach the camera, find the "best" spot, and set the tripod up there? I know a lot of this has to do with the subject. You can have all week to set up a tripod for a still life shot, but taking a landscape at sunrise or sunset on uneven terrain is tricky.
