Where do you store your lens hoods when you’re not using them? Do they end up on a shelf somewhere, or buried in the bottom of your gear bag? Or have you just lost them?
Here’s a simple little tip to help you never lose your lens hood again, and to always have it when you need it.
When you’re not using your lens hood, store it on your lens; backwards. Simply flip it around and screw it on and voila! Instant storage!
This trick will work with MOST lens hoods. There are a few that are designed differently. For instance, my 85mm f/1.8 D has an old metal screw mount, so that hood can only go on one way
