I’m in beautiful, soggy Alaska for a much needed vacation. I wanted to share my totally free, ultra-lightweight tip for photography while traveling, or any other time, in a rainy environment.

Here it is: swipe those shower-caps from the hotel! Throw them over your camera while you walk about, to cover the lens. When shooting, move the cap so it covers the body and the opening encircle the lens opening. This will keep your lens and camera body dry.

Most cameras can endure a few sprinkles – but it’s really the lens you don’t want to get too wet.

Fold up your happy cap when it’s dry, stick it in a teensy ziploc, and throw it back in your camera bag.  Takes up no room, weighs nothing, and it might save your noodle one day. 

Best. Thing. Ever.

Happy travels!
