Thank you for the advice and compliments. I have tried attaching my bag, but I didn't do it in any of the photos I have shown here. I think I'm just going to practice focusing see how clear I can get my photos. I'll start by cleaning the sensor and staying in the sweet spot of my lens to avoid diffraction with the center column down. I'll also try the manual focus to infinity La bikina suggested see how sharp my images turn out.

Why is it not a good tripod just curious? Is there anything I can do to make it more stable (don't raise the center column)? Also good to know resonance frequencies with tripod I will try to keep that in mind. Those frequencies in mind does that mean to only use a tripod if shooting for longer exposures than 1/15. Wouldn't the tripod still be moving and blur the image? If I am not able to get the correct exposure with the apertures you mentioned and SS should I just be raising the ISO or taking multiple exposes and combining them? Would you just not recommend using smaller apertures at all?


I shoot in raw and lightroom classic to upload and export my photos.

I thought this data was in the photo my bad. Also I meant to upload this photo instead of the other similar photo (other photo wasn't on a tripod this attached one is using a tripod).

I use this Joilcan tripod i got off amazon seems sturdy. https://www.amazon.c...13d670b6bc&th=1


I use it with the center column up. I used auto focus for all my shots. and all the shots were taken with the AF-S Nikkor 18-55mm Nikon DX lens.
