Join Joseph "PhotoJoseph" Linaschke for an in-depth discussion in this video Stabilized shooting, part of Photography 101.
- It's great if you can hand hold your camera…to get your shot steady…but sometimes hand holding it…isn't quite gonna cut it.…Sometimes you need to put your camera…on something else to stabilize it.…So, how do you know if it's time to stabilize your camera?…Well it's pretty straightforward.…If you're looking at your photo…and it's looking a little bit blurry,…chances are you need to stabilize it.…So, how do you do that?…There's lots of different ways you can stabilize you gear…and we're gonna go through a whole list of them here…starting with cheapest and freest one…and then stepping up to something a little bit more spendy.…Let's start off with a table.…If you're at a table or you have any kind of hard surface…in front of you, coffee table, stack of books,…anything like that, you can simply…set your camera on that and it's steady.…
At that point that might be all you need to do.…If this camera can get into the position that you need…by just putting it on top of a stack of books…or whatever have you, that's great.…
