EXPERT INSIGHT Rock steady
Joe says… When shooting from bridges, piers or promenades, ensure you’re shooting from rock, stone or concrete, and not from wooden platforms. Wood can flex and bend, which can result in unwanted camera shake. Stone doesn’t move as easily, or indeed at all, so will result in much sharper images. I found this out the hard way, so it’s worth remembering, especially when photographing in a harbour, on a river or near any deep body of water where you’re not on terra firma!
