#WordlessWednesday – I Can Do This


This week I have been playing around with my DSLR Camera and trying to figure how to, among many other things, hold it correctly.  According to all the research I have done the under-handed hold is the correct way.  It was feeling awkward in the beginning but I ‘m beginning to think I Can Do This!

#WordlessWednesday I Can Do This

 

Are any of you DSLR Owners?

How have you done with learning the ins and outs of these awesome pieces of technology?

Do you ever have to tell yourself “I Can Do This”?

    We have a DSLR camera too, but like you I had a very hard time figuring out how to hold it. When I tried, I ended up with extremely blurry and messed up images every time. So, it's now completely my husbands camera! I have my own small little basic camera that I;m comfortable with using. I vowed to be a blogger, but taking amazing pictures will never be my strong suit.

      You should definitely give it another try because you can take amazing pics with a DSLR without being a pro. You should check out The Photo Ladies over at CraftyWife.com. She is helping us all (from basic on up) to learn everything we need to have amazing pictures and enhance our skills. I\’d love to see you there! 🙂

    Just got one for Christmas. Nikon D3100. I haven't really researched anything about it though lol… never even thought about the correct way to hold it until I saw this!

      Congrats! That\’s a great model. I only looked into because my photos were a bit blurred and I thought that may be the cause…if you are interested in learning about your DSLR and making a few new friends you should check out The Photo Ladies over at CraftyWife.com 🙂

      Hi Karren, thanks of rooming by. You\’re right a idea camera could be a similar challenge. Thanks for the encouragement and I am sure I will get it soon 🙂

    • MrsTee Post author

      It’s definitely best to work with what your the most comfortable with. I’m enjoying exploring and learning the DSLR right now 🙂 Thanks so much for coming by…

      The only thing that made me consider it was that my photos were com in yup kinda blurred. I thought hmmm maybe I need to hold it differently? Turns out I was right…LOL I would love to take a photography class…I'm sure there is plenty more for me to learn 😀

    Uh oh…I've been holding it wrong too. I've had my DSLR for almost 2 years and I'm still learning!

      LOL… I was so confused that I started looking it up and so far the majority of things I've found say underhand with your elbows tucked in for stability and to reduce shake.

  • Teresa @ Crafty Wife

    I've always put one hand underneath the lens, I never realized it didn't feel normal to some people! haha Before I had my tripod, holding it that way gave me more stability for those low-light shots I wanted. I also feel that if I get jostled in a large crowd (like at Disney World) I have a much firmer grip on it. You'll get used to it and it'll become second nature. Can't wait to see what photos you've taken with it on the 15th!

      I was overhanding it at first and it wasn't right somehow. I kept getting blur. So I did a bit of research and for all the reasons you said and many more underhanded is the right way 🙂 I can't wait for the 15th either. It's been hard finding anything to photograph because our weather has been crazy but we seem to be having a break (70 degrees yesterday) so I'm getting out there for sure! 🙂

You should definitely go check it out….I would love to see you there 🙂
