WIN: A Lei Momi Camera Bag


Free Australian Competitions


Why hello, my loves! As you may already know, I'm a bit of a handbag lover and until recently everything went into my handbag - including my beloved Bertha (that's my DSLR, in case you were wondering how I fit either a pet or a person in my handbag). 

The problem with putting my DSLR in my handbag is that it has the potential to be bumped and knocked - even with all of my stuff padding it out. When traveling, my handbag camera bag solution totally didn't work - so I then had to carry a ridiculously hideous camera bag as well.... 


Lei Momi Camera Bag Review

Until Lei Momi stepped in. Tell me that this Poppy Red Alice Bag isn't gorgeous? I'm kind of sort of in love... you see, the Lei Momi bag has enough room for my camera and everything else - with weather resistant faux leather, a large zippered front pocket to hold your compact flash/SD cards, business cards and/or credit cards, two side pockets and a big back pocket that can even hold an iPad - you're all set!

The bag has dividers on the inside that are attached with velcro so that you can customise the fit - I change them around so I can fit just the camera body and lens and my other essentials - or add in extra sections to hold all of my camera bits and bobs.

  4. What a great contest! If you could see the state of my current camera bag, you'd laugh. I love the satchels!
    My tip is the "Rule of 3". Split your shot into 3 sections and keep the subject in one of these.

    ReplyDelete

  11. My best portrait photography tip is to joke and talk casually to your subject so that he/she forgets that the camera is there and you'll get 'natural' shot.

    ReplyDelete

  33. My number one tip: If it's worth taking one photo of a subject, then it's important to take an extra couple of shots in case the first doesn't turn out.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Double check the settings on your camera every time you pull it out of the bag. Saves being sorry later when you download them and realise the ISO was set for indoors!

  38. Always keep your camera in your car. There are plenty of times I've seen beautiful sunsets on the way home from work - or passed by something too interesting to not take a picture of.

    ReplyDelete
  39. If you are just starting out, have fun, the more you enjoy photography, the more you will want to learn and broaden your knowledge.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Don't overlook the mundane or smaller things and try off-centering. Remember, a good photo connects with you. It speaks for itself and will mean something special to each viewer.

    ReplyDelete

  45. My best photography tip is ignore the age-old adage not to photograph animals and babies - they may be difficult to capture, but it's this which adds so much life and movement and guarantees the very best of shots!

    I have so many great pictures of my two rescue dogs that really show off their character, energy and personality!

    Here's my dog Ziggy - https://fbcdn-sphotos-h-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-frc3/155854_145822658803952_3559926_n.jpg?lvh=1
