Have you ever been on a shoot and something broke…maybe a headlamp, a camera body part, or even your sunglasses? If you only had a piece of tape to fix it. I solve that problem by always having gaffer tape handy. Gaffer tape is strong, and won’t leave a residue when you remove it. On commercial shoots we have one or two rolls with us all the time. We use g-tape for attaching gels, taping power cords to the floor, and about one hundred other uses. If you don’t want to haul around an entire roll of tape, just take some strips and attach them to your everyday shooting gear. I have pieces on my tripod, lens hoods and speed lights. In a pinch I can peel off a piece when I need it. You can find gaffer tape at your local camera store or any online camera store. Don’t leave home without it!
