I leaned it against a tree, and held from underneath. I guess I have steady hands, though, because I do a LOT of night photography at 1/30th and 50mm with that 60D. I seldom need more than a 3200 ISO even at night. So needing almost half that in the day felt weird, but was the difference between f1.4 and f9.0 ... lol
