Hey everyone, So I just bought a Nikon D3000 and I have been taking photos with it for the last week. What is a good way to shoot landscapes handheld? If I don't have my tripod with me I usually end up shooting a few shots on f/8,f/9,f/10 using aperture mode and with a minimum shutter speed of 1/60 to avoid motion blur. Some come out very nice and others just do not seem as sharp as they could be. The ISO is always at 100 because there is enough light. Where is a good spot to focus? I usually do just above the horizon, trees, etc. Here are a few that I took with these settings, any ideas/CC about getting sharper shots? This one was f/9, ISO 100, 1/100, 18mm and just from my back porch because I was playing around with trying to get sharp shots. Here I am at f/8, 1/200, ISO 100, 34mm f/9, 1/125, ISO 100, 18mm Thanks!
