Step 3: Frame the Photograph
1
Ready the camera.
When framing photographs in the viewfinder, 
hold the handgrip in your right hand and cradle 
the camera body or lens with your left. Keep 
your elbows propped lightly against your torso 
for support and place one foot half a pace ahead 
of the other to keep your upper body stable. 
When framing photographs in portrait (tall) 
orientation, hold the camera as shown in the 
bottom of the three illustrations at right.
In 
j mode, shutter speeds slow when lighting is 
poor; use of a tripod is recommended.

Frame a photograph in the viewfinder with the

Using a Zoom Lens
Use the zoom ring to zoom in on the subject so that it fills a 
larger area of the frame, or zoom out to increase the area 
visible in the final photograph (select longer focal lengths 
on the lens focal length scale to zoom in, shorter focal 
lengths to zoom out).
