Radical suggestion Barrie - how do you frame the image ? Do you hold your fingers out in a sort of right angle shape like Monet painting "en plein air"

The camera is out in front of you doing the framing. All you are doing is flicking your glance over the top to see details that may be crucial. Meanwhile the camera is STILL DOING the framing.. and, because it is still in view as you look over the top, you can see that it has not moved.

I dunno Barrie..I still think I would struggle with this...  you need only look at my G2 red dot sight rig to realize I need more assistance ´╗┐lining things up
