Photo Tip Friday; Lens Care

Leave a comment

The world is seen through a lens in photography therefore it pays to see the world clearly. Have you ever thought the views from your windows are clear, then cleaned the windows and seen much clearer brighter light. The same is true for your camera lens, a clear clean lens lets the light in clearer without defracting through dust and smudges.

Lots of dust on a lens can create flare spots when shooting into  the sun.

To get rid of dust on a lens a simple blower brush does the job quite well. For smudges etc a good quality lens cleaning cloth is recommended. If using lens cleaning fluid make sure it is a good make and apply the fluid sparingly onto the lens cleaning cloth first, not directly onto the lens, working from the centre of the lens to the outside in a circular motion.

Maintaining a clear lens makes it easier to clean and will give you clearer crisper shots.
