I believe most people have the same problems as I do when taking night shots (especially overseas) – blurry shots or shots which fail to capture what we are looking for. While a DSLR improves the quality of pictures taken at night compared to digital cameras, it often requires a tripod (or even a monopod) for the pictures to turn out well. However, more often than not, we are travelling with family, friends etc. who may not share the same interest. So bringing the bulky tripod is a big no-no. In this two pictures (taken consecutively), it shows how a fleeting moment or motion can change the way a picture turns out.
