This is how I clench the iPhone in my hands when photographing on the streets. Despite a friendâ€™s remark, I donâ€™t think itâ€™s unusual. I refer to it now as â€œclawing the iPhoneâ€ because thatâ€™s how my friend Victor described it when he pointed out the odd similarity to a bird gripping on to a twig or something. I use my thumb to press on the shutter button and itâ€™s as easy as that.
I often hold my iPhone the same way when photographing in landscape mode. As Jorge I am sometimes scared to drop the phone, too.
But most of my photos I take with Instagram in portrait mode anyway.
