Hello peopleGrin A big thankyou for yesterdays comments on my first tripod upload and a special thankyou to Trev "Achieverswales" for his helpful commentGrin I still have a lot of practicing to do. Rome wasn't built in a dayWink
This is an image I very first used the tripod for, just to see how it assembled really and was looking for something quick to hand for a modelWink At least the pepper stood still more than the orchid WinkGrinGrin The water droplets are just natural condensation from the pepper being removed from the fridge. Hope you like it. The title is simply because it is a red pepper with a green stripe in it and I couldn't think of anything else today.

Very unusual angle that works very well Diane, the problem with macro shots is the DOF so narrow that it is hard to get everything in focus, the way this has been framed is excellent.


Regards

Trev.

Like your positioning to get a good diagonal (stem and then fold in the skin)

So you say you have bought, or otherwise obtained, a tripod, Diane. To ensure you're not fibbing...how many legs does it have?GrinGrin

You have to, as already said, use the tripod in conjunction with a remote release to get the very best results. More wallet opening required, by they are inexpensive.
This pepper is a very good effort...looks good enough to eat in fact.Wink

As Dave states it will come, you could end up like me and have 4 different ones, plus two different monopods.......
