How to shoot

The explosion of digital photography has put a little camera in every tourist’s hands. Thirty years ago cameras would not have been so prevalent because you had to know how to use one. Today, they are almost completely automatic.

Here’s a tip for my readership: the correct stance for taking a photograph is to put your feet together, bend your knees and stick your bum out, lean forward with the camera held at arm’s length, and grimace.

This must appear in the manual, as most tourists seem to know it.

That's how I shoot when I'm at home. I mean, in Sydney. I'm always at home. Should I only use that technique when in my guise as a tourist?
