Not really happy with the shots, many were underexposed and blurred. Wasn't able to use much of my tripod as it was SO CROWDED!!

Any tips on how to improve is greatly appreciated.

Btw, pics were taken by an A40.

Hi jamez,

Normally you'll use a tripod to eliminate camera shake that would cause your pics to become blur. Most of the time this would happend when you are taking night scene without flash, and the shutter speed is typically very long (it is recommended to use a tripod when the shutter speed is 1/30s or slower). Other cases would be when you are using long telephoto lenses or telezoom, in which case it is good to keep the shutter speed above 1/(focal length) of your lens to reduce blurness due to camera shake (eg. 1/250s for 200mm). A tripod with a shutter trigger (eg. shutter release string or timer or remote control) is important especially when you want razor sharp pics.

Hope that helps. :)
