One of the things people ask me most is what gear do I use. I'll probably make a list soon, but I think it's people are not concentrating on the things that matter, which is why i've made this post.
Joe Mcnally is what I consider my online photography teacher. I've learned plenty of techniques from him starting with my love for small flashes. This is the reason why instead of trying to explain myself, i'd like to link you to this video where he takes the time to show proper camera handling techniques.
take the time to see these simple tips which will help you greatly in your photo taking missions.
Also don't forget to read his blog, there is a great amount of information in those pages http://www.joemcnally.com/blog/
