So I got a GoPro for Christmas. And I right away ordered a kitchen timer for it. What for you might ask? As you might now, an old-school, analog kitchen timer turns very slowly, in fact, it’s limited to one 360 degree turn and 60 minutes of runtime. So it’s not really suited for those 24 fps I would usually shoot at.
A lot of people nowadays sell presets for Lightroom, but you might be wondering: Why presets, and how can I create myself?
Presets are predefined edits in Lightroom, I’ll write LR from now on, that you can apply to your images to save a lot of time editing those RAW files you shot. Of course, there’ll still be some manual tweaking involved, but presets can save so much time.

We all know those three legged things called tripods. They come in different sizes, colours, weights, material and so on. Some come with, and some come without a head. You can can tripods for around 20€, and there’s no real end to prices.
Where colours and height are more personal preferences, I would never again buy a 20€ tripod. I had one, so I know what I’m talking about.
If you’re like me, taking your camera with you anywhere you go, it’s bound to get dirty from time to time. And of course, you want a clean camera, or at least a clean lens and sensor, so that the dirt doesn’t get in the way of the picture.
