How To Hold The Camera Properly?


‘Camera shake’, where pictures look hazy because the camera was not held still enough while the shade was discouraged, is one of the most common problems that many modern computerized (and film) picture takers have. This is especially common in low-light shots where the screen is left open for longer periods. Even the tiniest change to the camera will render it. And and the only genuine way to get rid of it is with a stand.

Keep it close enough

Camera shake is a common practice among computerized camera users. For, keeping the camera at a safe distance away from them while making attempts – often with one hand. When holding the camera further away from your body (a truly steady thing) might be a good way to outline your shots. The more chance you have of affecting or shaking as you make your attempt.

While stands are the best way to prevent camera shake. Because they have three sturdy legs that hold things steady. But if you don’t have one, another simple solution to boost the camera’s soundness is to clutch it with two hands.

Camera shake

Utilize both of your hands 

Although shooting with one hand is appealing, shooting with two hands will help you relax (like three legs on the amount being superior to one).

How you should hold your camera depends on the type of computerized camera you’re using, and it differs from person to person depending on preference. There is no one-size-fits-all method for doing it, but here’s what I do the majority of the time.

Hold the screen not Punch it!

To grasp the correct hand end of the camera, use your right hand. Your pointer should be gently placed over the screen discharge, with the other three fingers twisting across the camera’s front. The back of the camera is grasped by your right thumb. 

How to make it easier?

  • Most cameras nowadays have some kind of grip and even impressions for where fingers should go. So this should feel familiar. 
  • Use a strong grip on your right hand, but don’t keep it so tight that the camera starts to shake. 
  • The position of your left hand will be determined by your camera. But it should support the weight of the camera. And will either sit under the camera or under/around a focal point if you have a DSLR.

How to use a viewfinder?

  • If you’re using the viewfinder to compose your shot, keep the camera close to your body for added stability.
  •  If you’re using the LCD, keep the camera close to your body but not too far away. Put your elbows in your sides and lean the camera away from your face a bit (around 30cm). 
  • Then, if the viewfinder isn’t too small or difficult to see through, use it again. (An issue on many points and shoots nowadays).

Take the support of solid objects 

By leaning against a solid object, such as a tree, or by sitting or bowing down, you may add more solidity. If you need to stand and don’t have anything to lean on for support, spread your feet shoulder-width apart to keep yourself in a consistent position. The camera would be more still if you can hold your body still.

Grasping a camera in this manner will give you the flexibility of being able to quickly arrange shots. While still assisting you in remaining still for the crucial glimpse of your shade being open.

Another quick incentive tip

Take a gentle but full breath before making your effort, hold it, then make the effort and breathe out. People also use the opposite technique, which is to breathe out and then make an attempt to breathe in again. It’s amazing how much a body can rise and fall simply by breathing; being conscious of this can give you an advantage.

Everybody has their preferences, and you’ll have to find out what works best for you. In the end – but it’s worth considering your strategy when you’re first getting to know your new advanced camera.


Finally, this post is related to ‘holding a camera,’ which will help eliminate camera shake. It’s not rocket science. But it’s amazing how many people miss the point and can’t stop wondering why their pictures are foggy.

There are a variety of techniques for reducing camera shake that can be used depending on how you carry it. Shade pace, focal points with picture change, and, of course, stands can all help; we’ll go over these and other topics in future posts.
