Pro tip: Store baby wipes in your car to protect your camera gear from greasy sunscreen hands

Baby wipes may seem like an odd piece of photography gear, but they come in “handy”

Sunscreen is a necessity for landscape and outdoor photographers, but it leaves a greasy residue on your hands, which can easily be transferred to your gear. To solve this problem, I keep a pack of baby wipes in the trunk of my car, alongside my camera bags and tripod.

When I arrive at my location, I apply the sunscreen and then use a moist towelette to cleanse the sunscreen from my hands. I also keep plastic grocery bags for storing the used wipes for later disposal.

Get yourself a pack from Amazon and toss them in your car so they’ll be there when you need them. You’ll thank me later.
