As a photographer that wears glasses I have to admit to struggling a bit when wearing a face mask to shoot, especially indoors where the combination of a warm environment and a hectic schedule conspire to steam up both my glasses and the viewfinder.
Catching up with an old school friend on LinkedIn led to me seeing one of his posts
about a face mask produced by Renz which I thought might help with the situation mentioned above. So after he sent me a couple of samples I thought I would give the new mask a try.
I found it pretty comfortable to wear and the shape of the mask allowed me to hold the camera to my eye freely without any problems or steaming up of the viewfinder. I was working outside but similar tests inside also proved to be far more comfortable than wearing a cloth face covering. Not the best look in the world but it certainly worked for me, not to mention the fact that it also makes it easier to communicate with your subject.
The masks come with two shields and two cords in the packaging below.
It would be interesting to see what people think, especially those of us that wear glasses.https://lnkd.in/dk9rXNm
Thanks to my assistant Jack Mather for the BTS pictures taken of me in action.
