Photography Gift Ideas For Photographers And Travelers
I’m always hunting for photography products to make my life easier, keeping what works and dropping what doesn’t. Here’s a list of my favorite products for the photographers and aspiring photographers out there.
Check out my favorite photography gifts below.
For the camera in everyone’s pocket. Smartphone lenses take your phone photography to another level with macro, wide-angle and fish eye options. Olloclip makes some of the most popular iphone choices, but there’s plenty more to choose from.
Remember polaroid cameras? The Instax does the same thing, it prints your photos out for you one by one as you take them. They’re a lot of fun to make keepsakes of trips or time with friends and family. It’s great to have for tangible memories that don’t live on a screen.
For photographers with notes to keep track of, I love these waterproof, all-weather notebooks by Rite In The Rain. They served me well on biology excursions in college and they’re still the perfect way to protect your notes from water, dirt and mud.
Helps you set up and steady your camera on ledges, rocks, logs, etc. without a tripod. Lightweight, padded and adjustable to keep your camera safe in a variety of situations.
When you don’t want to carry around a full size tripod, these are great for a smaller more portable option. The flexible legs make it easy to wrap around objects and tweak your camera position with small adjustments.
Rubber lens hoods are great for taking photos up against glass and eliminating reflections. They work great for getting wildlife photos in zoos and aquariums, or photos in museums. Make sure you get the correct MM size for the lens you need to fit.
