How to hold a camera or, the tale of a disgruntled photographer

This is wrong, wrong, wrong.

Actually, it's not completely wrong since I have my thumb kind of supporting the bottom of the camera.

But it still allows for camera shake.
This is how you should hold your camera.

This feels wrong, wrong, wrong.

But it looks much cooler than the top pic. And I'm getting used to it.

Teacher was right. Shoot enough pictures and it will start to feel natural.

Much less camera shake.


P.S. Don't look at my chlorine soaked just-came-out-of-the-pool-hair. There was a LOT of splashing in the pool today and I got drenched. Boys. Humph.
