Back to Basics: How Best to Hold a Camera When Shooting in Low-Light

One of the advantages a beginner in any field has over an intermediate or professional who is trying to improve their craft, is that the beginner has nothing to unlearn. So while the idea of holding your camera correctly for better low-light shots might seem painfully basic, this is one of those fundamentals you’d rather learn right the first time.

In the video above, Karl Taylor goes to great pains to make sure that you do just that. He spends seven minutes (okay, 30 seconds of that is promotion…) showing you different techniques that will help you shoot at slower shutter speeds without a tripod, and still capture a crisp shot.
