    I think he's talking about holding it where the shutter release is on the bottom. I agree...just looks and feels un-natural.

    That's the way you are suppose to do it, but that kid isn't doing it correctly since his dominant arm is chicken winged out. Should be tucked in more to form a monopod against your upper body.

    It gets to me how many people hold it with the shutter button on top, elbows cocked out. I always tuck my right elbow in, holding the shutter with that hand.

    The shutter button the bottom just doesn't work. Why the hell would the D3's and 1D's of the world put the second shutter release where it is if you're supposed to shoot like that? Your nose would be in the middle of the LCD.

    Yeah. I'm going to find this pic of how some people hold a dslr. It makes me so pissed off when people hold their camera like that. :madfawk: They grab the focus ring with their pinky finger outwards from them... I'll start looking for a pic now.

    Hey, whatever works to get the shot. I personally feel weird with the button overhead, and from what I've read the correct way is the way I do it since it gives you a steadier base...I don't see myself changing it now.

    It does feel awkward as hell...at first.

    I personally didn't feel like learn to shoot with shutter button down because with shutter button up I was shooting stable enough. That changed once I got my SB800, because when bouncing off of walls you need to direct your light either left or right of you in portrait orientation (in big halls, in small rooms it doesn't matter).

    So if you feel like that is a worthless technique, fine don't use it when in portrait orientation. But learn that now, get used to it (now it feels natural to me) so that you don't need to "learn" it on the spot when you gotta bounce your speedlight against the wall right of you in a big hall.
