When Adrian was away I decided to play with the mini tripod and take a macro photo of an ivy leaf. I had to go through various settings until I got it right. Using a tripod, self-timer and highest quality ISO really does give you the best result.

The larger leaf is half an inch across and the smaller one is the width of my small finger tip.

Isn't God's handiwork amazing?

That's gorgeous, Susan! I was looking at my camera...the highest quality ISO is the lowest number, correct?

As Jim said, that is indeed a very nice shot. Thanks for sharing it with us, Susan.

Very nice praise photo Susan! =D> :thumbsup:

Darvis - Yes, the smallest ISO gives you the sharpest picture and the least digital noise.

Now I have to get a tripod. This photography thing is as bad as whistles.

You don't have to have a tripod Ron ... if you can keep from moving .. thus said .. Wal Mart sells them fairly cheap! If I am walking about I use a monopod a lot.. so I don't have to carry the tripod. Night shots are tripod for sure. HOwever most of the things don't cost as much as a Burke!!! ;)

Tripods do not have to be expensive. Adrian made this for me at a cost of 50 cents.

Electrical wire, 1/4" bolt and some tape!

It grips onto railings, tree branches, door handles and microphone stands! \:D/

Beautiful photograph, Susan. God is both the Supreme Artist and Architect to design something so beautiful--as well as the beauty in the rest of His creation.

Adrian! Man, you're like MacGyver!!

Here is another good trick. A normal monopod does not prevent camera blur and is mainly used for supporting heavy lenses but a string 'monopod' does give you extra stability at low weight and for less than $1.

Image

You only need 1/4" bolt, some tape and a length of cord.

Image


Image

Just hold the cord under your foot and pull upwards to get the sting tight. This can give you an extra 2-3 of stops of stability. It is possible to use two cords with one under each foot to give even greater stability as they act like two legs of a tripod. All for $1.

Now everyone is going to want an "Adrian's Amazing Octopus-Grip Tripod," available in Blue, Black or Red. :laughing:

I will be making one of these but I spent some time today shopping for a tripod. One salesman asked me what I was looking for. I said a tripod. He said we have tripods from from $20 to $500. I told him I would take the $500 one for $20.

:D :D

Hey, those are cool! I'll have to try the string trick. What I usually do is put my camera on continuous shooting mode and take several pictures. Usually at least 1 comes out clear.
But when I'm taking pictures at night time, like at college, I set the camera down on something or use the little tripod that came with my camera.

Yeah, I've used the "shoe" or "jacket tripod" lots of times. :)
