Hi everyone! I am shooting two of my friends graduation pictures(they already had them done professionally but they think I would be cool if I did them also) and we were going to the local beech for the location. I was looking around and I see allot of people shooting with mono pods on, I would be using a 55-200mm so it would be bigger than a kit lens. But do you guys think that would seem like I just want to show off or is it good practice? BTW: I use a tripod with only one leg extended, if that makes any difference? PSS: I would also have a external strobe unit.
