I have a nicer camera than I deserve (it was a gift). However, I use it to photograph my artwork which is VERY important in my life. I’m starting to get some weird horizontal or diagonal lines across my photos, which I’ve determined due to some Google sleuthing, probably means my shutter needs cleaning.

I called our local camera shop and it seems like it’s going to set me back like $90 to get it done, and I know a lot of people do it themselves so I’m hoping I can go that route. 1) is that a stupid idea and 2) if it’s not a stupid idea, can anyone point me in the direction of some instructions that are broken down for n00bs because everything I’m finding assumes I am starting at a pretty advanced level, haha.
