Re: When do use tripods?

I highly recommend reading the books by Brenda Tharp and Glenn Randall that show what can be accomplished with long exposures and stitched panos which require a good tripod. Brenda Tharp's book Creative Nature & Outdoor Photography was a revelation for me and changed my own approach to landcape and nature photography.

With a tripod an exposure of 1 second or longer can be made and an aperture of f/13 or smaller used to maximize depth of field and sharpness. With water scenes long exposures help to flatten the water or better show its flow.
