I don’t know about you, but I’m always on the run, taking pictures. I never take the time to tote the camera bag along, or much else. It’s basically grab the camera with one lens on it, grab the other lens and off I go!
The tricky part of course comes when you want to flip quickly between lenses. I use my 18-108 as my everyday, but often require the micro-40mm for tighter shots. And I really don’t want to keep removing the protective caps each. and. every. time. Trust me, I switch between the two that much.
So when on the run today while building, I came up with 5 minute idea. I created a camera bed out of a vintage Huntly and Palmers Lemon Puff biscuit tin, some burlap and pillow batting.
(I have no idea what a Huntly and Palmers lemon puff biscuit is but I’d sure love to try one!)
I folded the batting over, then wrapped a burlap sandbag around it, then tucked it into the tin. I wanted something soft enough that would allow the weight of the lens to sink into the centre so it wouldn’t roll around.
Gotta admit, that is one cute bed!
Nice thing about this is, when I’m kicking up sawdust, I can close the tin up so there’s no dust issues.
I also use a wicker cat bed for upstairs which I’ll show you next time. Totally forgot to capture that weirdness!
Now I just wish I knew WHERE the lens caps were. Oh well!!
How do you tote your lenses around? Do you rotate between two as much as I do?
