Why do we not have recurring technique discussion threads when we have gear threads and recent photo threads?

To start out, I am happy today because I managed to take a photo @ 1/15 shutter speed and 200mm focal length hand-held that wasn't just blurred out. Trying to improve the steadiness of my hand. The lens did have VR, but Nikon's only accounts for 3 stops... so it's way below the recommended minimum for that focal length. I found out that each lens has to be held differently to be stable enough for the VR to make any difference in a situation like that. This opens a door to a whole new realm of practicing my hand.

Now it's your turn. Let's discuss techniques, both for shooting and post-processing.

a good rule is 1/focal length as your handheld shutter speed )before lens stability comes into play)

so, a 100mm lens should be handheld at 1/100s shutter speed minimum, unless you're pretty steady. This is really helpful.

That is true. What I am practicing now is my ability to take sharp still images below that limit hand-held, mostly without any movement in them. As you said, "unless you're pretty steady"... well, I want to become pretty steady.

I think it's a good kind of self-torture that also benefits me in times when I do have enough light to stay above them. Nothing worse than a shaky photographer.
