    if you can afford the space and the time to set up, use a tripod.

    if not try to adopt good shooting posture either by
    1) leaning yourself on something solid (pillar/ wall/ bench) and not so easily moved, compose and shoot your pic

    2) use a hight ISO setting

    3) shoot without support - steady yourself, take long breaths. when you exhale, exhale half way and click the shutter button. Same as firing a rifle.

    Keep trying!

    Hi Yoyo ,

    If a tripod is not avaliable , there are some lens which incorporates anti-shake features .

    From canon , the IS (image stabilizer) lens

    From nikon , the VR (vibration reduction) lens

    Of course , all these are just hardware .

    Ultimately , techniques in handling long exposure shots are essential as highlighted by sniperD . But these hardware can aid you in taking less of those jerky shots with long exposure

    hiazzz...have the same problem, slow shutter speeds is when the shakes comes.... the breathing technique helps...I must remember to ease the shutter down and not snap...

    damn , it is a lot like shooting.....

    the cheapest recommended remedy: use a sling bag, cross sling and bring it up front to chest level and let your left elbow rest on it. it fill feel more stabel this way
