Lens hood

NPhoto - - Over To You -

Photo hides may face in any di­rec­tion, and south-fac­ing hides will have more sun­light beam­ing to­wards them (in the north­ern hemi­sphere). In such sit­u­a­tions, a lens hood should be used to avoid flare – caused by light di­rectly strik­ing the lens – and so pro­duce an im­age with deeper shad­ows and bet­ter over­all con­trast. It’s good prac­tice to keep your lens hood on at all times when shoot­ing wildlife as it re­duces the chances of a glint of light from the lens star­tling wary crea­tures.
