About This Class

If you owned a DSLR camera from some time now, maybe you'd start to notice weird spots on your photos that shouldn't be there:


They should be visible, mostly, when you shoot with high f/ numbers (such as f/16 - f/22), but they could be annoying even at bigger apertures.

There is a good chance that the spots you notice are caused by dust deposited on the sensor of your camera!

It's quite a normal thing, don't worry!

Every time you switch a lens with another one, or when you shoot with a zoom lens, there is a chance that dust will move and find its way to the sensor chamber and deposit itself on the sensor.

In this class I'll show you how I clean my equipment after a long journey outdoor:


You will notice a difference in the sky color, but that's because of course it took some time to clean my gear, the sun shifted position ;)

If you look closely you will also notice a few new spots, that's because when blowing with the pump they moved.

You can repeat the procedure I showed you as many times as you need, until you're completely satisfied!

As always, if you have any question let me know in the comments! :)
