Ever since I got my new tripod, I have been spending every second of no-mom-free time I can snag testing it out because I must get into a certain zen-like mood when I take pictures. My mom tends to disrupt that zen with her negativity like a few nights ago when she accused me of being selfish because I left her shrimp defrosting on the kitchen counter for a tad too long. That aroused a shouting match even though she was the one doing most of the yelling.
Anyway, I discovered my tripod doesn’t do so well when it comes to macro (close-up) photos. The above photo of my Japanese Azalea was taken without a tripod. I had to trash the ones that were taken with a tripod since those were super blurry and unfocused. Maybe it’s me hurrying through the set-up process because my mom was coming home at any second. Maybe I just need to really take my time when shooting photos with a tripod.
