Tip of the Day: Don't Hold Your Breath

Despite what you’ve heard, holding your breath when you shoot won’t help you get sharper pictures. Breathe in, breath out, take a half breath, and relax. If some air comes out, fine. Holding your breath can cause slight tremors and is sure to mess up your shooting rhythm. Use the technique target shooters use—breathe naturally and relax. —Jon Sienkiewicz
