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
