This has got to be probably the silliest question ever asked on these forums, but as a newcomer to the exciting world of dSLR photography, I honestly don't know the answer (I hope this doesn't get the "book worthy" tag from someone!)
When you go out walking with your dSLR, how do you carry it? I mean, do you carry it at your side with the neck strap sitting on the same shoulder as the side the camera is on? (I'm leery of doing it this way, because it seems like it'd be too easy for it to slip off). Do you carry it slung from your neck directly in front of you, like tourists at Disneyland? (I've tried that method and the camera keeps "bouncing" off my chest every time I walk...I have no idea how people do this!) Do you carry it at your side, but with the neck strap slung around your opposite shoulder (safest, but difficult to get the camera up to your eyes if a sudden photo opportunity presents itself)?
For the sake of argument, assume it's being carried only with neck strap attached, not handheld. As for which lens is attached, sometimes it's any of the lenses in my sig. Also, I am in a very peaceful rural setting, so no chance of it getting "snatched" or anything like that. And, let's say as a final parameter, the walk is around 20-30 minutes.
Thanks! (for the answers, and for not pointing and laughing at the newbie)
