Product Review: !Mo Camera Strap

Hello everyone. Glad to be writing another a new blog post for you all! This one is going to be a little different. A while back, I was invited to write up a product review for !Mo Camera Strap. They were kind enough to send me one of their camera straps, for which I was to use and share my opinions about it here. Upon first glance, the strap is very well made. The embroidery-like pattern on my particular strap (Classic Damask Brown) is beautiful and pairs well with the brown leather located at the end of the strap. 

I attached the strap to my Nikon D90 for these photos, but have also tried it on my Nikon D600. I found it quite easy to attach the strap, however noticed there was a clear difference between my Nikon camera strap and this one, in terms of the thickness of material.   

I've had different opportunities to test its strength and so far it's been trustworthy. I did have an occasion where it did detach from my camera, however I think that may have had to do with the way I attached it in the first place. I tried again today and it was very much secure while I walked around the house with my camera around my neck. I must say, it's really comfortable to wear.

As you can see, it has clips as well, allowing you to change up your chosen straps! Make sure you check out the rest of their designs on their site. They also have camera pockets available too, which are super handy to attach to your camera strap.

I hope you enjoyed this review and think of purchasing one of these really cool straps yourself! If you do happen to purchase anything from their site, I have a coupon code for you. Just enter "alexphoto" when you check out and you'll receive 30% off! This will be valid until June 30.
Thanks again to !Mo for giving me this opportunity! :)

A Friday in May

Yesterday was a lovely, warm Autumn's day so I thought I'd take some self portraits in my backyard. Although this was mostly an act of procrastination, it was time. I tried to think back to the time when I'd last picked up my camera and took photos. I couldn't remember and that scared me! There's nothing I love more than just going outside and shooting. To think I hadn't done that in what I thought was over two months made me really sad. It made me realise that I need to make time for photography, even if I am drowning in uni work. Sometimes other things are more important and yesterday, shooting something was more important than some assignments. You'll probably notice that I'm a bit sunburnt, haha - that's a result of a two hour P.E. lesson in the middle of the day on Wednesday. Silly me forgot to wear sun cream (oops). Anyway, hope you enjoy this blog post & have a lovely weekend.
