Iris with Tripod

One of the reasons I wanted a tripod was to be able to use lower ISOs but still get a decent depth of field with my macro shots. Sunday I decided to try it out after using my new macro lens handheld to give the IS a workout on Saturday.

It took a lot more time and patience to set up the shoots, but I think with time I will get better with it. And the results at ISO 100 are much better than 2000 or 3200.

I think the tripod really helped me be thoughtful about how I was shooting instead of just firing off a bunch of frames and hoping for the best. I also took less shots of each setup since I could be more certain the ones I did take would be sharp. I also used my remote, since the self-timer takes too long for me.
