A gallows tripod is an element of photography and is used by amateur and professional photographers. The tripod looks like a gallows, hence the term. At one end a weight is hung, for example a sandbag or an iron element and at the other end a shade or a lamp. Both serve the correct illumination of the place or object to be photographed. Gallows tripods are available in specialist photography shops or on various online trading platforms.

Photo & Camera: Gallows tripod Video Guide

The boom tripod consists of a main rod that runs vertically. At the lower end three further horizontal bars are attached. These horizontal bars are used to attach the end of three more bars to the vertical bar and connect them to the horizontal bars, creating a stable pedestal system. The tripod is quickly folded by a folding mechanism and is transportable. A swivel head is placed on the vertical rod and we insert a tripod rod into it. A further swivel head is used to attach a photograph screen or a lamp to this rod, which is to be aligned during the photo shoot.

Alternatively, a white canvas can be hung on the vertical bar, which serves as a background for photographs. Such backgrounds are necessary, for example, in the production of biometric passport photos, the background of which must remain neutral in order to recognize the person photographed on it perfectly according to biometric measurements. For general photos, such a background is ideal for later placing color or pattern backgrounds. The photos are processed on the computer using software. If a larger background wall is required, two gallows tripods are erected, which are connected by means of a horizontal bar. The canvas is then attached to this crossbar in order to carry out the photo shoot.

Prefabricated systems are available on the market so that boom stands do not have to be bought together independently in individual parts. The following elements are included in a set of Photo Alive:- Tripod rods with a minimum height of 800 to 2,600 mm- Horizontal rod consisting of four parts with a maximum length of 3,200 mm, which can be clicked into place by means of a click system- Carrying bag

This set is also equipped with all brackets and swivel heads. In the bag, the gallows tripod set can be easily transported to take photos. The system can be set up without difficulty by one person. The TecTake® system is more comprehensive. The base consists of three gallows tripods, three softboxes (umbrellas) and illuminants, which imitate daylight with a brightness of 5,500 K. The base is made up of three gallows tripods. The boom stand can be extended to a maximum length of 3,500 mm. Included in delivery is a weight that serves as a counterweight to the shade or lamp. Gallows are almost always made of aluminium. It’s a lightweight material. For stabilization, weights can be used or sandbags can be placed on the tripod base.

In everyday life or during transport, individual parts can be damaged. A complete new purchase of individual components is not necessary. All individual parts are available for purchase in stores. Also canvases in different colours are offered for the gallows tripods. If you are a amateur photographer, we recommend an inexpensive starter set, which is suitable for extensions. With the experience values also the gallows tripod set increases. Theoretically it is even possible to mount a telescope on the uppermost tripod rod. This saves users of telescopes a separate tripod. When selecting the quality, it is essential to pay attention to tested products, as cheap imitations often become more expensive due to wearing parts.
