Lowepro Customer Service is Excellent!

Camera Image Sensor Cleaning Advice

It is inevitable that every now and then you camera’s image sensor is going to get dirty and need cleaning. If it doesn’t then you need to use your camera more and get out of the house!

A pastel painting of one of my images by Julie Hazlewood

What a nice surprise when Julie Hazlewood (hazlewoodjulie at yahoo .com) messaged me on Pixabay saying she had just done a pastel painting of one of my images and did I want to see it.

Julie has recently got back into painting and pastels are very new to her but she is really enjoying it. […]

This Amazon Basics backpack was the first dedicated camera backpack I bought when I first took up DSLR photography back in 2013, so the bag has been thoroughly and literally tested to destruction by me out in the field. For £28 ($28) you get a very well designed, sturdy and practical camera bag, perfect for those just starting out in photography.
