How to hold your camera
« on: June 12, 2014, 09:41:35 AM »
I would imagine that most if not all of the readers of this forum already do this, but I see an abundant number of photographers out there with DSLRs that do not use these techniques.  My very first SLR, the Canon TL, showed these techniques in the owner's manual.  I read and then practiced and sure enough, that is the "proper" way as at my very young age, 15, was soon able to hand hold a LOT of shots at very slow shutter speed that no one else I knew were able to do.

I started noticing the professionals around at the HS football and basketball games were holding it the same way my owner's manual said.

This should help, hope you will take a look and "make the change" or brush up on maybe some forgotten techniques"

Good post. This should go to "Resources" or some other quick reference place.  Sometimes a review of the basics helps everyone; not just the newbies.   :D
Take your camera with you dammit. You can't take your next "best photo" if your camera is sitting at home in the bag, now can you?
