Artomology photo tips: camera straps

Artomology photo tips for close up and macro photography by Jane Davenport

customised camera strapsGet rid of that ugly camera strap that your camera came with. Especially the type that have your cameras brand on it! They may say “Canon/Nikon/etc Digital Camera” but they also shout “oooh, look, person with expensive, new camera. Come steal me”.
I have tried the techno, load bearing neoprene-type straps, but the tend to bounce around and I found them more annoying than shoulder saving.

A few years ago, I saw a young lady with a GORGEOUS camera strap. My antennae went wild! She directed me to Etsy.. and a search later, I had my own customised camera straps being made and sent from the USA. Ladybirds on one (of course), and red with white polka dots on the other – with a ribbon corsage! I got mine from shabby straps.

Go to Etsy here and search for ‘Camera Strap dslr’. Or you can opt for a padded strap cover. I noticed at Sewtamz you can have your initials embroidered on the straps. You can also get a strap for your point-and-shoot camera. Lots of delectable delights!

The added bonus of this splash of individuality, is that your camera is very easily recognisable, and less likely to disappear in a crowded situation. Have fun!
