One of the most important things about good photography – and one that is most overlooked – is how to properly hold a camera. The heavier the camera, the more important this is. Right hand grips the camera with forefinger on the shutter button. (Everyone gets that part right. It’s the left hand they get wrong.) Left hand UNDERNEATH the barrel of the lens, supporting the camera from below and elbows tucked in tight to the body. That’s it! You focus and zoom the lens – not that anybody focuses anymore – while your hand remains underneath the camera and your elbows are tucked in. Focusing with your hand on top of the lens is the sign of a rank amateur. You see, supporting it underneath with your elbows close to your body provides a stable platform to eliminate camera shake.
