TORONTO, Canada – Sept. 20 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) — If you’re the photographer and trying to get in the picture with your favorite celebrity, what do you do? Celebrity-seeker Selena Tee has pages on FaceBook filled with her and star photos from last week’s Toronto Film Festival. “I’ve been disappointed by bad photos that often can’t be retaken. I have a picture of me and George Clooney’s jaw!” says Tee. However, she was recently introduced to Quik Pod(TM), the world’s first handheld extendable tripod, developed by Fromm Works, Inc.
The days of holding out your arm only to get poor picture results are over. No more asking strangers for help. You simply hold the extended Quik Pod(TM) with camera attached and properly framed photos and videos are captured without the help of strangers.
