Free Lens Hoods! Seriously...


Every once and awhile (while wandering aimlessly through the net) I stumble across a sight that A) is phenomenally useful and B) I can't believe I did not know about.

This is one of those sites.

The importance of lens hoods cannot be overstated and if you are missing one, head over to Free Lens Hood, print out the hood you need (on a firm gray card stock) and you are good to go.

They have hoods for:

Canon

Nikon

Olympus

Pentax

Sigma

Tamron

Tokina

And if you can't find your lens in their long list, you can even design a custom lens hood too.

Free Lens Hood is just that, FREE, but if you find it useful (meaning you print out a lens hood or two) you might want to consider donating a buck to help defray the cost of keeping this valuable resource available.

Love it. I'm going to make one for my one and only lens which did not come with a hood. Thanks Scott!

Have you ever felt intimidated by the thought of taking photos of other people? Believe it or not, once you’re over your initial nerves, people are one of the easiest subjects to photograph. Why is this? Well, imagine that you’re taking landscape photos. Most of us don’t live in a spectacular landscape, which means we have to drive somewhere to take the photo. Once there, if the weather and light aren’t good, there’s not much we can do.
