I usually just zone focus distances, and shoot from where it hangs on my neck. after awhile you learn the approximate boundaries of your lens, and can level the camera. by tugging down on the neck strap for resistance, and holding it to chest, and holding breath, you can get very slow speed shots easily. very easy, very good results.
