Hi and welcome to the CL forum.

- Keep your elbows pressed against your body to support your arms.
- Hold your breath while you press the shutter.
- If you tend to close the eye not looking through the viewfinder. Don't! Your brain uses the visual information to keep your balance. You'll start swaying more if you close that other eye.
- Lean against something if possible to eliminate the movement from the balancing we have to do because we are standing on two legs.
- Use a 'String-Tripod'.

If i got it right what you mean, there's a video on how to make one at [url]youtube[/url] (Would've given the excact link, but can't find the video right now)
He bought a screw that fits into the camera, bound a wire to it and then on the other end of the wire, those corner materials with a whole in he middle.
Then he would put in the screw to the camera, step on the corner thing and bam - you got another kinda monopod.
At least that's how i remembered it.
