Who shoots outside without lens hoods?
May 7, 2010

Hi everyone,

Lens hoods make lenses bigger, longer and more intimidating. If I avoid shooting with the sun hitting the front element from the sides, will I still get less contrasty pictures outside without a hood? Or more flares? I would like to get less attention from strangers while doing street photography.

I have mainly in mind the Nikkor 24-70 and 70-200vrII with nano-coating... they're much bigger with their hood!

Thanks for sharing your experience
