Hi, I'm Dan Reinecke with Unknown Media. Today, I'd like to talk to you about a few do's and dont's of photography. Now, number one and most important is your safety. Make sure to stay safe on a photography shoot. No matter how good you think you may get a shot, nothing is worth risking your safety. Now, a good rule of thumb is to always make sure you have your batteries charged before you go to a shoot. Another good idea is to always have lens cleaner or a lens rag because you never know when you're going to actually need it. Now, a good idea is to make a checklist of all the gear and equipment that you're going to need so when you end up going to a shoot, you don't realize that you forgotten something and you'd have to go back and then it could waste a lot of people's time. Now, another good idea is to wear black on a set. You never know what kind of reflections are going to be out there when you're taking a photo. Wearing black will actually cut down the chance that you'll show up in your own shot. Now, lastly, a good idea is to always, always do the opposite of what I'm about to show you which is covering your sensor. You always want to keep your sensor covered because it's very easy for dust and particles to get in there and this can actually cause a lot to replace and it will easily show up in a photo and mess up that perfect picture of yours. That's just a few do's and dont's of photography. I'm Dan Reinecke, take your best shot.
