This week on my blog we are discussing how to take better photos this summer. Today we are discussing how to protect your camera in the elements.
Avoid changing lenses while on the beach - walk off the sand before doing so.
Make sure you have a UV or lens protect filter on your SLR lens to protect the front element from sand and salt spray.
A lens hood offers some additional protection against salt water spray and can eliminate sun glare.
Don't hang your camera around your neck after you've been swimming in the ocean. Salt will still be present on your skin or togs, which can transfer onto your camera.
