Must haves for photographers
Artificial lighting is a necessity when you are shooting indoor portraits, flat lays, or food photography. These lights are perfect, they fold up small for easy storage and come with a storage back. They are also decently priced.
3. 50mm Lens
I personally have this lens on my camera right now and currently take all of my portrait and flat lay shots with it. It is one of the cheaper lenses and takes wonderful shots and is perfect for carrying around as it doesn’t add much weight to your camera. This a great first prime lens.
4. Photography Bag
Is great to have if you have more than one lens or other things you need to carry with you while capturing wonderful shots.
5. SD Card
These are an absolute must have, and you can’t have enough of them. I have two in my camera at all times.
If you are in the market for a camera I use the Nikon D610 and absolutely love it! It does everything I need plus some; If you have a cheaper budget there are many other good options. Choosing between Canon and Nikon is really a personal preference. I personally just liked Nikon a teeny bit better. This camera is definitely worth a look, and the slightly hefty price tag.
Great Stocking Stuffers/ Holiday Gifts
Because what photographer wouldn’t want a lens coffee cup! If you don’t drink coffee you can use it for your pens.
Also known as shoe mounts. These are great for getting those perfectly level shots and they slide right on top of your camera.
Adobe Creative Cloud
This one won’t actually fit into the stocking but would be a great gift for any photographer! They have many different plans and options, you can learn more by clicking the picture below!
