London Photographer : Quick Tip Monday

November 10, 2014  •  1 Comment

Quick tip for a Monday ...

As a photographer I use a lot of batteries.  A typical event will see me changing batteries 2 or 3 times in 2 flashes, that can mean upto 24 batteries.  I Have to change them quicker than normal in an event situation because when they drain just a little they recycle slower.

I was throwing away loads and loads of batteries after every event and spending a fortune week by week.

Someone I knew suggested I get a battery tester ... often a semi drained battery can be saved for portrait work when recycling as quick is not as important or from a set of 4 in a flash there is only 1 that is so drained that all the others can be saved.

I bought the simplest little meter from Maplin for about £5 and it's saved me a fortune ....

I do similar - actually, once they are finished in a camera they still have life for children toys, remote controls and alarm clocks.
