Does every passion end up being ‘got at’ by gadgets?
However minimalist you like your life to be, we are always seduced by something new. Especially something that seems to solve a problem we weren’t even aware of! There seems to be a gadget section in the brain that convinces us to part with our money. Photoion photography school has been ‘got at’ by gadgets yet again. Here are some of our favourites that are at the cheaper end of the spectrum and won’t make you feel too guilty.
The first Photoion Photography School likes is a LensPen
We love it and it’s so easy to carry (oh listen to us). If you want to know it has a retractable brush. With this little gadget you can get rid of particles, dust and ‘what have you’ that might build up when you are outside, perhaps on a Photoion Street Photography Workshop. Here you might well be coping with the dust from the capital, especially during the swirling winds of autumn which are just around the corner. Not only does it have a brush but at the opposite end there’s a pad. This is great as the carbon compound within it does a brilliant job at getting shot of smudges and fingerprints and anything else that’s found its way onto your lens. This definitely gets the Photoion Photography School collective thumbs up. It’s cheap and is advertised at being good for 500+ clean ups. If you want to check it out this is its official title: LensPen New DSLR Pro Camera Cleaning Kit, NDSLRK-1. The next Street Photography Workshop is on the 12th October 2013 and runs from 10.30 until 4.00. Make the most of the light before the clocks change at the end of the month.
Photoion Photography School gets nasty with Nasty Clamps
The second product in our impromptu list of ‘must haves’ are Nasty Clamps. We just love the name, if we are honest! These aren’t new but as a gadget that’s earned its place we’d say, Nasty Clamps do it. You can clamp just about anything to any surface and when you are stressed and in a hurry they are amazing. Reflectors, light weight LED panels, speedlights or bounce cards. These little critters really do the business. So if you are using equipment with a standard ¼” mount then you’ll find Nasty Clamps just what you need. If you are concentrating on table top photography, say on the Photoion Food Photography Workshop on the 2nd November, then they might well come in handy.

What could the Photoion Photography School do with a Flash bender?
Yes, what about the Rogue Flash bender? Come on, you have to love it! If you want to feel all powerful then ensuring light travels just where you want it is pretty high up the agenda. It means that small flashes can have considerable impact, especially if you are on location. Perhaps you might want to use one of the Night Photography Workshop. The next one is scheduled for the 10th October between 6.00 and 9.00pm. You can get them in all kinds of sizes and they are incredibly versatile. Expolmaging sell these Rogue Flashbenders is you feel like checking them out.
If gadgets aren’t your thing then maybe a no nonsense photography workshop might just be what you need to take your photography to the next level. As we move into autumn we have number of courses on offer. But hurry some are already sold out. Be aware, you don’t need to bring your gadgets with you!
