Happy first Anniversary!

WOW I can’t believe how time goes by. A year ago I was in Durban to capture my best friends wedding. What a special day it was for my friend and his new wife. When they read their vows to each other it brought tears to my eyes….

Johan and Marietjie may the rest of your lives be as beautiful as a year ago an may your love just grow stronger and stronger each day.

Happy first Anniversary!!!

As you know by now I went to Durban to capture my best friends wedding. I had the shock of my life when I wanted to take a photo and my camera lens fogged up within seconds. I was worried about the wedding photo’s and went online and started to Google fogged up camera lens. I came across a few forums that had the same advice. Put your camera in a Zip Lock bag and leave it outside so that the lens can adapt to the climate. I asked my friend to please take me to the nearest Spar so that I can go buy some Zip lock bags. Lucky for me they had 1 packet of  large bags that I can use. When I got back to my friends house I put my camera in the bag and later I tested it and the lens did not fog  up. From now on there will always be a Zip lock bag in my camera bag.

Humidity and fogged up camera lens

Okay I hope someone out there will be able to give me some advice. This is the first time that I am in Durban in December since I’ve became a photographer. The humidity is very high and even the furniture in the house are very humid.

This morning I took out my camera to take some photo’s of my friends daughter but the lens fogged up before I could take my first photo. I packed away my camera immediately. Tomorrow is my friends wedding and I am starting to stress. I hope tomorrow the weather is better.

I am searching the internet for some solutions hope I get answers before the wedding tomorrow.

I will only be posting my photo’s of the day when I am back in Cape Town on the 10th of December.

Chat again tomorrow . Need to get some answers and fast…..
