Always bring your tripod. Repeat after me, always bring your tripod. I really should be slapped for being out at dusk in Hawaii without mine. Sure enough, it was a picture perfect sunset – and I had no tripod. Of course, I was at a groom’s dinner.
To make up for it, I had to crank the ISO and hope for the best. I still love how it turned out – enough that I came back the next AM and shot the same location.
