I learned something today. Maybe I was the only person who didn't realize this to begin with, but a customer at a station showed me a trick. He was pumping nearby and could see I was taking multiple pictures of the pump across from him. I was taking them because of those LED lights on the pump always blinking in sun glare, and I wanted the lights to be on for the pic I put on the report. This is probably a dilemma for all of us.
Usually when a customer approaches me, I get ready for them to ask me questions, but this guy was cool, and works for some company that deals with LED lights. He could tell I was having an issue with them. Simple trick he taught me: Put sunglasses in front of your camera lens. Stops the blinking, doesn't ruin picture quality. Works like a charm!
Thought I'd share, unless I was the only person who didn't realize this already!
Think its bad for a photo, try taking a movie of them dang lights. Get the same effect that you get watching propellers spin in Youtube videos. Although the deal with the sunglasses I will have to try.
