Professional photographer and educator David Bergman has an ongoing video series for Adorama TV, "Two Minute Tips," in which he shares great tips and tricks for many photography-related topics in roughly two minutes - the title doesn't pull any punches.

In the latest episode, seen below, Bergman discusses lens hoods. Lens hoods are something we often take for granted.

Bergman shoots with a lens hood basically all the time, why is that? Find out below.
