Thread: Pro photographers = good marksmen?

  1. #1

    Default Pro photographers = good marksmen?

    Heh heh... just a thought that occurred to me.
    All those guys who can take great shots at long zoom ranges without the need for a tripod or IS are usually great marksmen. Any truth in that?

    It depends. There could be a correlation and there might be absolutely none. In my line of work it certainly helps as a high degree of manual dexterity is required, but if all you do is landscapes on tripods with LF cameras, then no, I wouldn't think there'd be any relationship at all apart from co-incidence.

    Actually, an alternative theory just popped into my head. Pros are less likely to be "good" at handholding for lengthier periods of time because in theory they are also more demanding and would start rejecting pictures that show signs of handshake before casual non-professionals.

    At least, some professionals anyway!

    Talking Co-relation between Shooting and Shooting.

    Hi all,
    I have found that the breathing and stances used in shooting a high-powered rifle are very similar to and useful for shooting with a camera. Same rules apply.
