Maybe you’re a seasoned photographer, with years of experience under your belt, working in all sorts of conditions. Maybe you’ve been working outside all of your professional life, taking photos in good weather and bad, cold and hot, wet and dry. And you always get the shot!
Or, maybe you’re like us: we sometimes don’t do the right thing every time, and treat our photo gear… well, not in the best way. Sometimes, in our excitement to get the best photograph EVER, we don’t do what we should with our camera (keep it clean, dry, and safe.)
Even the most prepared photographer has those days when things outside are working against her, and everything doesn’t go as planned.
Don’t worry! There’s lots of advice for you to consider before you even put the camera in the bag, and strap on the tripod. Take this great article by the folks at PetaPixel, for example. Or this one excerpted from Outdoor Action and Adventure Photography by Dan Bailey.
Read up before you suit up! And bring back that prize-winning shot!
