My camera is at the Nikon hospital again
It was acting up before we left on our trip. I’d dropped it back in December & the light meter would stay on continuously and drain the battery if the switch was in the on position. Not a huge problem as long as I remembered to turn it off when I was taking a photo & I always carried a spare battery with me on our trip.
But it was also DIRTY! Look at all those dust spots up there. I didn’t bother to figure out if they were on the lens I was using or on the camera sensor, but they are so annoying! Some pictures they blend in well & aren’t noticable, but in my any of the shots where the sky is showing, they are very obvious & I’ve been using the heck out of Lightroom’s spot removal brush as I go through all my Argentina and Chile vacation photos. This was our view from our hotel in Santiago out towards the Andes.
I approved the repairs from Nikon yesterday & hopefully my camera will be on it’s way back to me this week. I’ve had a heck of a time keeping this camera clean, but need to try harder so I can spend less time cleaning up photos!
It’s Leap Day! I feel compelled to do something exciting and memorable! I can’t believe I was blogging about visiting Christ the Redemeer statue in Rio on our Brazil & Argentina trip 4 years ago…how time flies!
GOOD NEWS OF THE DAY: Seriously awesome day- lots of good things happening & I need to celebrate leap day!
