Frugal Ways To Save Money: Camera Bags

   Frugal Ways To Save Money

frugal ways to save

I decided that I was going to share with you Frugal Ways To Save Money.  I think using your brain is the best way to figure out ways to save money. I recently bought a camera and a new lens. The camera was very expensive as was the lens. I realized I didn’t have anywhere safe to keep these item. I started to investigate camera bags. I was shocked to see they started at $100 and the cute ones that I liked were around $300. Truth be told I had spent all my money on the equipment and $300 is almost as much as the lens I am saving for.

I began to think about what a camera bag is. It is a bag with a compartment that keeps lens and the camera body safe. I did what everyone would do and I went to amazon and I searched. Camera bag inside. Then on page two I saw Camera Bag insert. Yes, that is what it is called. I came across a couple of choices. Then I went up stairs in my closet and I pulled out my bag and purse collection. I tried to decide which bag would be most useful as a camera bag. Then I found a purse I had that I could fit a camera in. I found a brief case and two tote bags. I measure out what the inserts would be to try to get an idea of which one would fit.

Then I put the camera and the lens in each box and visualized the additional padding. I decided I had a good chance at making three bags I had on hand into camera bags for the cost of the insert.

The Egg

I am attending community college this semester which has been a n eye opener in more ways then one. I have always wanted to learn to use my camera. I have a cannon EOS Rebel XSI. I always wanted a nice camera so one year my husband “bought” me one. He actually used airline miles to get me one. I have taken some great shots. They have all been very lucky. I wanted to actually learn how to use the camera because there isn’t anything more important to me then preserving our memories. I thought I would share the top three things I learned last week. I am sure you may know these things I had NO idea. I am never embarrassed by what I do not know if I am willing to learn.

1) Tip one put on a lens hood on your camera because it will aid in the protection of your lens

2) Buy a UV Lens Cover  

3) I learned when you are going to take a picture on AUTO then hold down the button 50% of the way and let the SLR camera make corrections. You should not just mash down the button.

4) I learned that you should take tons of pictures and move a little bit at time to obtain the proper coverage of your subject.

5) I last cool thing that I learned what shutter speed was. I had no idea what that number meant on my camera.
