When photographing your invention prototype or model, it's important to keep the camera still. The best option is to use a tripod, but if that's not possible, follow these guidelies to get a clear, sharp picture.
Stand with your feet apart and your knees slightly bent. Hold the camera with both hands and your elbows against your body. Exhale. Press the button. If necessary, you can lean against a wall, chair or railing for further support.
If your invention prototype or model is low to the ground or if you need to take a picture from a low angle, keep your elbows in to your sides while you get down on one knee.
