Use a Tripod for Better Photography Results



Over the last 2 or 3 weeks I compiled a series of photography tips that I thought are worth while sharing, inspirational, and keep everybody motivated for their own Photography journeys and travels. There is little doubt in my mind that if taken to heart they will increase our abilities to create more meaningful, interesting and artistic photography pictures. This is the last post in this series of 20 photo tips but I consider this one probably the most important one to share. I am always eager to get your feedback and comments; open to suggestions as well. What is your most valuable tip? 

Photo Tip #20 of 20: A solid tripod is one of the most important investments for a photographer. High quality nature photography is rarely accomplished when hand holding our camera. A tripod is essential for low light photography during the morning, evening and twilight, handy for shooting wildlife and macro photographs or when we experimenting with impressionistic or abstract photography. The tripod not only steadies our shooting equipment for maximum image quality, it also helps us to discover the world of photography. We are more likely to slow down, step back, think and compose a more meaningful photograph. We most likely ask ourselves: Is the horizon straight, is there sufficient depth of field or shall I open up the aperture setting to minimize depth of field, are there any distracting elements in the foreground or background of my composition, do I even have a composition?
