Here, let my 11 yo DD show you how to hold a camera

Haley Claxton is 11.

She has a great photo eye.  And she’s great with a camera.

To boot, she just looks like the quintessential professional photographer.

Take a look at her below.  She has her left arm tucked into her body to properly hold the camera steady and has her hand cradling the lens barrel so she can focus with accuracy.  And she has her right hand holding the camera so that her index finger can properly push the trigger button without shaking the camera.

This is how to hold a camera.  Not with your elbows out to your sides.  For Godsake, not with both of your elbows out to your side.

Did I mention she’s only 11?
