Yesterday was a very VERY close call for me. I almost lost two of the most precious things in my kit bag…..the only two things that I have at the moment to produce my work. My two babies…….Canon 18-55mm and Sigma 70-300mm lenses.
How I managed to drop both of them from standing height and they both survived is beyond me. God was and is surely watching over me. All I let out was a weird sounding shriek/scream that the people around me were well nervous. I managed to pick myself up and continued with the job at hand.
Lesson for the day:
Change your lens on a level secure area and make sure that is has been locked into place before proceeding. Also, helps if you have a small light bag to carry stuff around if you are shooting from different locations.
