I carry my camera about in normal bags rather than camera bags, especially when travelling around town (usually battered wax cotton jobs that fit everything in). Lenses are in the lens pouches that are supplied with them, and the camera just sits loose or in a neoprene case. It basically stops you looking like a photographer with expensive kit worth nicking (especially when you dress more refugee chic than high fashion!).

Other tip - always carry your camera Wink

Shoot in RAW, always enjoy yourself even if nothing inspires you on location.

Overcast and cloudy ?

Look for texture and tone and concentrate on mono images

I want a way to fit a flash with an Omnibounce into the flash case and close the case. Tried some stick-on Velcro but it soon came off and now I've got sticky stuff on my flash Sad

Might try the baby wipes any particular brand?

Learn to change lenses by touch.

It takes a while to get the hang of, and a strategically placed piece of duct-tape can help matters. It also helps matters that I don't use lens caps, I'm just careful to keep my bag in tip-top condition.

I find it helps me keep my eye on the ball whilst changing lenses quickly, in the dark. Smile

Oh, and anther one, is learn how to use a flash wireless. The difference this has made to my flash photos is massive.Smile

It should be launching soon, but I don't have an exact date.
Pete would be the man to ask.

should I fall asleep, please wake me up when EPZ TV comes on. I don't want to be the idiot who misses it!

I'd like to thank all the team on Ephotozine, for all the help and service they've given us over the years.

Within the next month or so, I shall be receiving my first digital SLR. So with EPZ providing this valuable service, I have no excuse, but to make an effort to look, learn and improve!

Depends how technical you want to be.

Pete has all the relevant info.

If it helps, I understand that the normal epz username and password will allow you to log on when it is launched.

Goodness is he still on the go - was life chairman of Washington Camera Club way back in the 70's.
