In some cases when the camera tripod has been left at home it is possible to shot stable images without a tripod by simply placing the camera on the camera bag. Remember to use the self timer or a remote to fire off the camera. If the camera bag is too low or impossible to use for other reasons, a good replacement is to hold the camera against a wall, pier, pillar, door frame or something other more stable than your hand.
With this additinal support it is possible to use shutter speeds up to a couple of seconds. It is a good idea to fire off a couple of extra shots and to verify sharpness.
