PSA: Please Wipe the Lens of Your Cameraphone

You all see them: go to social media pages and you’ll see folks simply just trying to capture the moment but it being super soft, maybe out of focus and with light streaks all across? Why is this? Many people simply do not know that they need to wipe the lens of their cameraphone down. The other night, my friend was recording a video at a concert and but not a single detail could be seen because of the light steaks across the lens thanks in no small part to the fingerprints on her lens.

Think of it like this: put on a pair of glasses. You can see crystal clear out of them, but then take oil and smear them on the lenses. How will you see?

The same concept applies here, and you’ll be much better off simply taking the time to wipe down a lens. You’ll get a better photo that you can remember or simply forget all because it’s going on social media anyway.
