Description: In photography, a Lens Hood is a plastic ring that is attached to the front of a lens. The device prevents unwanted light from entering the glass to help prevent glare or lens flare. Lens hoods are also considered a protective element, as they can prevent objects from coming into contact with the lens glass./span>
