Photography Workshop with Vincent Versace – Few Tips

Are you the kind of photographer who carries a big back pack filled with several cameras, lenses and other photography gears? Are you also worried more about the scratch on of any of your precious photography armors rather than worrying about that delicate little souvenir carried back home?

Vincent Versace, the Nikon Ambassador for US shares a few handy tips in his one day photography workshop at Mumbai with Tumbhi!

1. Shower Caps

They act like the perfect raincoat for most of your cameras and lenses. With their elastic wide enough to hold any size of head, they prevent your cameras thereby also protecting them from any water drop or scratches!

So the next time you are visiting a hotel room, don’t forget to throw in a few complimentary shower caps!

 

2. Lens cleanser

‘Hoodman ‘an enzyme based lens cleanser is what Vincent prescribes. You do realize keeping the lens clean is as necessary as wiping off your eye glasses clean- to give a clearer view and thus a better photograph. Like wet wipes this cleanser is easy to carry and use. Available at Amazon this will sure give you a clearer lens if not a photograph!

3. Torch

A torch is to not only show you your ways through uneven plateaus of that deadly forest for wildlife photography , but also when you need that “little extra sunlight” on the object of your photograph. A 4 spectrum light bulb (battery operated) is what Vincent prescribes.

4: Wrist Strap

A wrist strap, mostly that one used by sports persons is to keep your hand anti-shake while you click that amazing rare moment. It stiffens the wrist and ensures that you don’t get disappointed with a great yet blur picture.

 

 

 

 

 

5. Shade Card

A simple shade card will enable you to have the idea of that perfect shade of ‘grey’ while clicking Black & White photographs. A simple yet very effective technique to determine the desired shade of color in your finished photograph while clicking itself.

6. CamRanger

A CamRanger wirelessly tethers your Nikon or Canon DSLR with your iPad or iPhone. So basically you keep your camera at the set angle and click with your iphone or ipad in hand without pressing the button of your camera. Its best when you need to click secretly without scaring away the subject of your photograph. See more about CamRanger here http://www.camranger.com/

7. Battery Chargers

And last but the most essential, the batter chargers! Generally photographers carry lot of batteries but one or two chargers! That’s a big NO! Carry enough battery chargers in proportion to the batteries you are carrying! You can’t let go of a rare moment just because of a stupid battery you see.

Hope a few of these tips will come in as handy to you as they were meant to be.
