Using a Tripod - Blog link from

If you've ever taken a class from me, you'll know that I usually recommend bringing in enough light to enable fast shutter speeds that will allow you to hand-hold your camera (more on shutter speeds later this week).

However, there are definitely times when using a tripod is recommended and better overall. Instead of reiterating what has already been said, head on over to and check out this really great post by Spencer Gordon that includes informative videos outlining the differences and advantages of using a tripod: Check it out!
