Get Stability

When you are creating dramatic landscape photograph a longer shutter speed may be required to capture movement or to capture your scene in low light or if you are using a smaller aperture;  you will need to find a way of ensuring that your camera is completely still during the length of the exposure. If you don’t have a tripod handy look for elements in the area that you can stabilize your camera on. I also recommend a cable or wireless shutter release mechanism for extra camera stillness. And don’t for get to turn off your Image stabilizers; the motor of the stabilizer could add blur to your image because the camera is complete still.
