Answer is to opt for lenses with VR (Vibration Reduction) or IS (Image Stabilization). You pay a pretty penny for this feature. For me, it’s worth the extra cost, and for the point I’m at in my photography it’s a reasonable expense. But that wasn’t always the case, and what about uber slow shutter speeds with no tripod. No IS or VR can hold up under pressure like that. . .no matter how magical they may be. . . and magical they are.
Here are some techniques for avoiding camera shake and achieving crisp, delicious images no matter the length of the lens, no matter the shutter speed.
2:- RAISE YOUR LEFT SHOULDER:- I am definitely a right eyed photographer, requires that I shift for a moment to my left eye. What I’m doing here is raising my left shoulder, and bracing my left elbow into my rib-cage (no arrow for this one). For further stability, you can pull your right elbow in to your chest. As always, exhale completely before depressing the shutter to avoid introducing shake.
3:- CREATE A TRIPOD WITH YOUR KNEE:- You can create your own tripod by resting your elbow on your knee while in a seated position. Again, bring that other elbow in for greater support.
5:- CRADLE IT:- You can create a sort of cradle for the lens between the shoulder and the wrist. Stabilized the hold by balancing the elbow on knee.
I hope my techniques helps you to obtain more sharper and crisper images.Please share you tricks and techniques in the comment section below
