Day 1 – Basic Camera Care

Ron Says:
Your camera ain’t cheap. Take care of it. A dirty camera is to a photographer what a dirty spatula is to a cook at the truck stop – it pisses off the end user. Leonard’s camera is brand spanking new and caring for a new camera should be job one. The cost of that camera amounts to many a dollar that isn’t going to find its way tucked into a stripper’s g-string and to keep the girls happy at their loss the first lesson for Leonard is how to care for his new lady – that Nikon D60, Nikon 18-105mm VR lens and any other trinkets that came with his camera kit.

Below are a few links to articles about basic camera care. Leonard’s gonna read them you may as well too.

Leonard Says:
Well of course. I had an idea that there was preventative maintenance that goes along with owning a sophisticated digital camera. I also know that it needs to be protected between shots and shooting locations. Even so during shots. I bought the D60 camera body armor to protect my investment. I also boought the Lowepro A100 sling bag for packing the camera along. I did neglect one thing that is aparently important. A cleaning kit!
I do know that the strippers are gonna miss those tips and all. I feel if I get good enough with this, I can take their headshots and make posters of the girls, which may generate enough revenue, to tip the strippers. I think they will see this as a fair trade-off. The way I see it, the best way to tip a stripper is with her money. Only problem I see is the fact that this has my interest enough to never see another stipper…. (Ok… I’m lying!).
Once I get my cleaning kit I will properly clean my lens and body. This day opened my eyes to a lot of information I hope will be a repetitious part of my photography. Thanks again Ron.
