Everyone who has done courses with me knows that I explain ad nauseam how to hold the camera.
And this is how:
- It is steadier. This is the main reason you do not move your left thumb underneath the lens, since steadiness means absence of camera shake and the resulting blur.
- It is easy and quick to adjust focus or zoom without having to move your hand back and forth – i.e. you save time.
- It is easy to switch to portrait orientation: only your right hand needs to move (up, in case you are wondering).
- And we may as well add: you look just like a pro.
