An important tool for on-location work

Chuck Vosburgh - Tuesday, May 01, 2012

Knee pads. Yes, knee pads.

Changing your point of view from a standing position to a low angle almost always improves your image. But if you're like me, you're reluctant to get down low for fear of getting your pants dirty or hurting your knees. That's where knee pads can save the day. Knee pads make you more likely to get down low and more likely to get better images because of it. And they look cool!

What to get

There are two main types of knee pads; flat and round. The ones with a flat surface are a bit more restrictive to moving around, so I recommend the ones with rounded knees. Get the "pro" models, they're more comfortable and durable. The cheap ones are no bargain because they'll wear out fast. I got mine at Home Depot for about $30 and love them.

So, go get a pair and get down!
