Discover the automotive accessory that doubles as a camera necessity when photographing waterfalls.
Hey guys! Brent here with part 6 of my 7 part Quick Tip Series: Photographing Waterfalls and Streams.
I’m once again in Dorrigo National Park shooting the Crystal Shower Falls, and I have a great tip for you when out shooting waterfalls; because as beautiful as they are, they are equally wet, which isn’t so great for your equipment.
But I’ve discovered a surprising – and budget-friendly – accessory that will help you keep your lens dry and clear when in high moisture environments such as this.
Watch to learn what it is.
What’s Great About A Microfibre Cloth?
First, if you get one from the automotive section of the store as I have, it’s inexpensive! But more importantly, it’s really effective at clearing your lens or filter rather than pushing the debris and grease around. This little piece of fabric is a definite must have for your camera bag, especially if you’re going to be out in wet environments.
And, as a bonus, it’s not too bad as a hat!
