“Beauty is a fragile gift” Ovid (ancient Roman poet)
Yet you try to look beautiful from a personal level (appearance) and eagerly wait for approval from others.
Instead, you can try to concentrate on how best you can look beautiful from the inside.
Dear friend, when you carry your DSLR or Mirrorless cameras, do you protect your lens with a lens hood?
Beginners in photography must be wondering, why add additional weight to the camera bag?
My friend, it is an essential component of your camera system.
What is a lens Hood for?
✔The main idea is to shield the lens from unwanted light and thus stop lens flare and your pictures have better contrast of colours and tones. The glare will be minimum.
✔The lens hood protects the ‘front elements’ of the lens, when the front of the lens can hit some hard surfaces, especially when the camera is swinging as you walk and you are using the shoulder strap.
Replacing a lens hood is cheaper than replacing a lens.
✔Lens hood gives an extra layer of protection (apart from the lens filter) to the lens from scratches, rain, dust and even snow.
Is it possible to protect things all the time?
My answer is…it’s just not possible, despite being careful.
My friend, life is like that. Consider this part of your life as a ‘fun’ part and just move on!
“I finally figured out that not every crisis can be managed. As much as we want to keep ourselves safe, we can’t protect ourselves from everything. If we want to embrace life, we also have to embrace chaos.”
Susan Elizabeth Phillips
