Tip of the Day – Lens check
Do you shoot in or around water a lot?⠀
I love shooting action shots in water, but it does come with a unique hazard!⠀
A lens hood will help to protect your lens to a certain extent, but it’s still entirely possibly a well-placed splash could get past it and leave droplets of water on your lens. It’s not always something you’ll notice while reviewing the images on the back of your camera either. Often you won’t even realise until you get home and are flicking through your images in Lightroom, when you notice a weird blurry patch in the same position on every image in the sequence!⠀
Whenever you are shooting in or around water, periodically check your the end of your lens to make sure it hasn’t been splashed with water. ⠀
Can you tell this advice comes from personal experience?⠀
