Steady Is Ready

I've found that the best way to hold a camera for shooting (of course) is with my left hand supporting the lens and turning the zoom ring and my right hand operating the buttons. I frame 95% of the time through the viewfinder because it's much easier to hold the camera steady while pressing it against my forehead than while holding it away from my

body to frame through the LCD. I will frame through the LCD screen for some shots like holding the camera high for the angle.

I was shooting cleanup operations after the 2010 BP Oil Spill.
This my "almost always" shooting position. Thanks, P.J. Hahn for the shot.
