What’s this about Photography I ear?

So by now you may be wondering why I’m posting a written article rather than one of my many images, I digress…. After working as a photography for a couple month or so in some very loud environments I decided it may be a good idea to start using ear plugs just to save myself from damage. I started using those cheap disposable ear plugs you get from most work places free of charge but found they were a faf and most of all got rid of most high end frequencies all together.. If I’m shooting at a gig I want to be able to enjoy the music aswell as protecting myself against which in some cases I would particularly prefer to be protected from the music too. 

This got me thinking, so from that point on I was looking into a few pairs of plugs ranging from cheapish right up to over the £100 mark for the best you can get moulded type. I was looking around on Ebay and found these ACS ER20’s for only £8 they looked fantastic not only provided in ear protection but allowed for a flat sound and most of all lowered the volume by 20db. They came in the post pretty quick, well what can I say fantastic can’t go wrong for £8.

For all you gig photographer and even music lovers just stay protected. Afterall I know i’d rather spend the small money than pay the large price of loosing my hearing or gaining tinnitus.

  1. I do not even know how I ended up here, but I thought this
    post was great. I do not know who you are but certainly you are going to a famous blogger if you aren’t already 😉 Cheers!

    • Can I just say I agree with you entirely I’m not sure I knew where I was going either… my post leave a real cliffhanger even for myself and add to the various things I’ve noted in my life…

  2. You can certainly see your enthusiasm in the work you write.
    The sector hopes for more passionate writers like you who are not afraid to mention how they believe.
    At all times go after your heart.

  3. Aw, this was a really nice post. Finding the time and actual effort to
    generate a top notch article… but what can I
    say… I hesitate a whole lot and don’t manage to get anything done.
