I am just lucky to have a very stable stance (that I worked on very hard for a long time shooting handguns when I was younger) and my hands aren't shaky unless I am very caffeinated! lol! I also used program mode... which does allow you do control shutter and aperture... so I made sure that shutter was fast enough, and aperture was wide enough for what I wanted.
Now if I had had my D800 with my 70-200 2.8 with the 1.4 TC... I would be doing a very large print of that last one, lol! As it is.. it might make a decent 11x14.
