How do those pictures work?You could do with some adjustments youself -
Quick photoshop adjustment
Most noteably :
shortening your draw length to give you a more natural posture and muscle positions (you could also shorten the release aid strap if thats possible to bring your hand and rear shoulder into position).
loosening both your hands - dont grip the bow or the release.
They are meant to highlight the bone and muscle posture within the pic, and give you something to compare (the alignment of the lines is easeir to see than bones within the body). of course this leaves some room for interpretation as all people are different but it does help get things together.How do those pictures work?
I have tried shooting with a shorter draw length( it is only 27"). It doesn't feel right, and it feels kinda cramped if I go shorter than 27". I don't grip the bow hard( I have a hard time shooting with an open hand because right at the shot I close my hand), but I should loosen up my grip some.
Thanks for the advice.
Triangle of POWAH!Straight through the bow arm and shoulders. This will help loosen your grip also, as well as improve your consistency.
Thank you! It's a little over 70#Midwesthunter:
Maybe instead of looking on here for "how to shoot advice" you should look at books and videos that show you what to do. Although there are some pretty darn good archers on here, none of us are perfect... yet! We're all working on it!
Nice alignment! what's the poundage?
Your best bet is the classifieds or eBay, you should be able to pick up a more serious bow at a great price when you get the money together.
The advice N&B gave you was on how to take a decent picture so that he can give you advice on your form.i too am working on my form, i posted pics of me on general archery discusion, and i got some really good advice from nuts&bolts. http://www.archerytalk.com/vb/showthread.php?t=872474
