Outfit: Camera Strap Convert



If you use a camera as often as I do, I highly invest switching out the one that came with your camera for something better. I didn't even know when I picked out a new strap this summer that in addition to adding a bit of flair to my camera it had a bit of padding and easy-to-remove snaps. The snaps are handy because I never want to use my camera without a strap, but Thomas is actually more of a free-hand person; this way we can quickly switch for each person's preference no matter who has been using the camera that day. And we are usually sharing the camera; we switch out memory cards so the camera goes from my shoots to random projects--lately it's been shooting pictures for our neighborhood Santa's workshop (I might share a silly picture of me as an elf on Instagram at some point)! Working with Santa has been pretty fun though; lots of interesting children going through with funny answers as to what they want for Christmas and if they've been naughty or nice. It's more entertaining for me perhaps because I also get a kick out of hearing little kids with strong Irish accents! Anyway, I bought my first strap through Shop Ruche, which has since sold out of it, and I recently hunted down the maker (iMo Camera strap) so I could get another. Both of mine are the neoprene style strap and I can't say enough positive things about them; they're such a small investment but it makes a big difference in comfort (and it looks pretty too). I never saw the point of switching my strap for years, but now I'm a convert--no more standard straps for me! Padded, clipped, and patterned, please.

I've never tried shooting without a camera strap! I frequently have to use both hands to direct my subjects (usually three little boys aged four-and-under) and having to set the camera down all the time would drive me crazy, I think. ;) Plus I have a phobia of shooting from above a small child and dropping the camera on them. O_O So, straps for me, thanks! I love my scarf strap but yours is lovely.

I definitly need a new camera strap. Mine is so flimsy and comes undone so easily. Yours is really cute.

I recently was able to go through a trailor of old camera things, and I grabbed about 5 straps for me to liven up with whatever fabric prints I choose! They all have the right hardware and build, so its easier and cheaper than making one completely from scratch, which I would never get around to anyway, and I can't wait to get started so I can match them with my outfits! Love the photos and outfit, and your hair, and your camera strap, and your face! haha :)

I've been thinking about making a camera strap, but worry about the dependability of it and would be devastated if it broke and my camera fell to the ground! Yours is so cute, I'm thinking I will just bite the bullet and buy one!

Also, I love your boots! The two-tone is pure perfection.

Oooh, I still use the standard strap that came with my camera when I bought it, but I would totally considering switching it out for a prettier one! I do admit that the strap often bothers me when it gets in the way, but I like the safety factor that it offers!
