Whenever I need to use a slow shutter speed I first try to correct my shooting position.
Am I tucking my elbows in as tight as possible? I’m I standing steady with my knees bent just a little? Could I lean against a wall or a tree? Or maybe I could even get an interesting angle for my shot by laying on the ground. These are my first thoughts. This first video is by professional photographer Karl Taylor. He’s showing you how to hold your camera when using slow shutter speeds in low light conditions.
In the second video we have some tricks to create a tripod of your own. Some of these tricks are great for taking still images, and the other ones will give you a really awesome, steady look when you’re shooting video.
