Camera technology has advanced so much that just about anyone can take good photos. Not necessarily good photos, therefore more have to do with composition, subject, use of light and effective shadows etc. However, if there is one item that helps in taking a better shot, it is a humble tripod.
Many of us believe that a tripod is nothing but an additional item that helps us stop camera shocks. With high ISO capabilities on a new camera, with increased shutter speed, especially in low light conditions, then why do we need a tripod? This article can be seen in various ways of tripod can make us better photographers or at least, improve our ability to use the camera. If you want to know more about the tripod then you can pop over the link.
The most obvious use of the tripod is that it provides stability to the camera and avoid camera shocks by operators in situations where longer exposure time is needed. Not many of us can hold the camera with a 1/60 shutter speed, so we don't have the opportunity to avoid rocking the camera when lighting time can be seconds or minutes or sometimes for hours. The example this time is:
Night Shot: Star lane, display of fireworks, moon shots, cityscape, and vehicle movements where the lights run away.
Motion Blur: Waterfall, Sports Action, and Sea Wave Movement.
