Camera Manual Grip Techniques

  • Elbows-in
  • Shoot sideways (with respect to to chest), back-elbow against ribcage.
  • “Create a Tripod With Your Knee” (bod-pod, as one responder called it)
  • Lie face-down (on chest) with hand flat or fisted under lens, to achieve requird tilt.
  • “The Machine Gun Hold” – cam-front/lens rests on upper-arm, hand of which grasps upper of other arm.  Awkward.
  • “Cradle”.  A sideways-shooting-mode, with back of camera on shoulder (?) and hands gripping cam from same side, at middle and back.
  • It’s best to see the pictures really!  At the above link.
