Since Japan is the top digital camera producer with brands like Canon, Sony, Nikon, Panasonic, Olympus, it’s important to know how they along with the rest of us Asian friends take pictures ^^; for those interested in not only the technical aspects of cameras but also the different stances when it comes to taking pictures.
For those who need to take a clear picture without a tripod, the above sumo camera stance will definitely help — keeps your camera well balanced and lets you adjust height without compromising quality.
The knees-in butt-out technique is great for older folks who have a problem with the sumo stance — perfect for those 50 and up.
The extended crossed-feet pelican stance is great for taking pictures of shorter gals or kids. Also favored by men who wear tight curdoroy pants =)
The quarter-squat extended back is safer for those with back problems — nothing worse than cracking a spinal disc while taking a picture!
Another folk using the popular sumo stance — as I said before, perfect for adjusting height on demand.
And finally, the inclined torso stance, also known as the human unzooming stance, is perfect for targets walking your way.
Are you fond of a particular technique or would like to share a new one? =) Photos via detchapat
