Stance

  • Move around to find the best picture. You don't have to stand to take a picture. You can kneel or lie down. Lying down is especially good for photographing things near the ground, such as plants or insects. Or try climbing to a higher position (See example).

  • If you stand, slightly spread your feet in a stance that's comfortable.

  • Lean against a solid object or rest your elbows on one. Hold your breath at the instant of exposure. Watch for when the movement is least.

  • You can also hold your camera on a wall or fence for extra steadiness.

  • Test your camera to see how close you can be and still take sharp pictures (see Better Close-ups).
