Photographers, remember to do the following when in Bruges, Belgium…

  1. Bring your tripod
  2. Say no to the second beer at dinner so you can set up  while the evening sky is still that lovely cobalt color
  3. Ask for directions (or learn to read a map – it is a bit challenging in Bruges)
  4. Bring your tripod

Of course, I didn’t do any of those things. My biggest regret, though, is inadvertently leaving my tripod at home. In my rush to get to the airport, I forgot it next to my bed.

You can up your ISO in the absence of a tripod, and Photoshop has some options to reduce noise… but you know, it’s just not the same as a crisp clear shot done right.

Bring your tripod.
