Dos and Don’ts of Taking Photos
If your hands are naturally shaky, or if you're using very large telephoto lenses or if you're trying to take photographs in low light, or if you need to take several identical shots in a row, or if you're taking panoramic photos, then using a tripod is probably a good idea. For very long exposures, a cable release or a remote control is a good idea; you can use the self-timer feature of your camera if you don't have one of these. And if you feel you are in a situation whereby it wants you to use a tripod but you do not have it at that moment, you can hold the camera at two points away from its center, such as the handle near the shutter button and the opposite corner, or toward the end of the lens
. Do not hold a delicate collapsible lens such as on a point-and-shoot, or obstruct something that the camera will try to move on its own such as a focusing ring, or obstruct the view from the front of the lens. This will decrease the angle which the camera moves for a given distance your hands wobble.
Try not to hold the camera up for too long; this will cause your hands and arms to be shakier. Practice bringing the camera up to your eye, focusing and metering, and taking the shot in one swift, smooth action. The more pictures you take, the better you'll get, and the more you (and everyone) will like your pictures. Shoot from new or different angles, and find new subjects to take pictures of, and keep at it; you can make even the most boring, everyday thing look amazing if you're creative enough about photographing it.
