Here are some tips to get you looking like a professional photographer. The newest, most advanced, and of course most expensive lenses are sometimes a necessary investment if you want to be a professional photographer. To capture those important moments, skilled hands that can quickly change between lenses is an important factor so you won’t miss those important moments.
The video below shows you how to change your lenses quickly, using primarily your index finger. It starts out looking normal and well, but then.. ouch! See for yourself.
Warning: Do this at your own risk!
Keep in mind, fast hands aren’t enough to become a professional photographer. An efficiency in your work and being able to make smart decisions on what tools to use are also important. As seen in the video, it’s really too risky to detach and reattach a lens as big and as heavy as a 24-70mm by using one hand.
Not long after the video went viral on the internet, a 2nd part 2 video was posted. In it, the photographer exclaimed that the “tragedy” seen in the first video was staged and it was set just to gain Youtube attention.
