Can I take landscape photos without a tripod?


In fact, you should first ask yourself why you use a tripod, especially when there's a lot of light, like in the middle of the day.

There may be several reasons:


1 - We can make long exposures, allowing us to create motion blur effects with clouds, water, or any moving object... (Beware of wind in trees, which will give you a blurred effect that's not necessarily what you want).

2 - HDR, or exposure bracketing, is the idea of taking several photos of the same point of view with different exposures and then stitching them together to create a photo with a wider dynamic range.

You can also do the same thing with focus at different points, then stitch them together to get a photo with greater depth of field.


3 - The tripod can be used to create more stable panoramas.

4 - You can also make time-lapses, which are videos created by several images from the same point of view at different intervals, but this isn't really photography.

Apart from that, you don't need a tripod for landscape shots.
