Do you need military training to become a better photographer? Probably not, but this rifle marksmanship video from days long past is a wonderful way to improve how you position yourself and hold your camera, especially in awkward spaces and tough situations.
While we’re shooting photos, not bullets, the same techniques can be applied to holding your camera, especially when shooting longer lens handheld.
One technique in particular that I’ve used over and over is the trick of exhaling and holding your breath when shooting a photo where you need as slow of a shutter speed as possible when holding your camera.
What are your thoughts on the video and the techniques shared? What one in particular stands out to you as the best trick to get better shots?
