I hear people talking about proper technique for handholding my D800. How do I know if my technique is adequate. Obviously, a blurry picture is the biggest clue. Is there somewhere I can learn more about this. Any tips would be appreciated. D800 and 300mmf2.8. This is not overly heavy, but it is hard to keep steady. I have a monopod that I use a lot. Tripod is still in the box. Not sure if I should take a tripod in the field. I mostly shoot birds. Not always a lot of time to set up a tripod. Any advice?
