I'm interested in doing some time lapse photography. Instead of having me waking up at 5am, I would like to just set my camera on a tripod and go to sleep. Is there a way to secure the tripod out on a balcony over night without worrying that it would fall and break the camera?
I will be in europe (Switzerland) so I don't expect particular hard conditions. It will not be in the wild. Again, I'm only looking to do this in the balcony of my hotel room, not up in the mountains in the wood. But I just don't feel safe leaving any equipment outdoor without watch. I have a very decent carbon fibre tripod from Sirui.
Any tips? Thanks.
