THE ULTIMATE HOLIDAY GIFT GUIDE FOR PHOTOGRAPHY LOVERS
1.The Nifty 50: Canon 50mm f/1.8 Lens
Every year, I spend a lot of time recommending this lens( seriously). When you are ready to move your photography to the next level, this is the first lens I always suggest and this is the lens( or the Nikon Version) to start with. It's a prime lens, which means that zoom with your feet rather than your camera. But it will CHANGE the quality of your photos. And it's cheap.
2. Humans of New York: Stories
I KNOW you know about Brandon Stanton and his book the Human's of New York. The Facebook page is full of inspiring stories behind the photos. Now, he's compiled them in a wonderful book. It just makes you feel good.
3. A Subscription of Clickin Moms.
I am a lover of Clickin Moms. I've learned so much about photography and made great friends from being on the forums and taking the photography classes. Give someone the gift of a membership or Christmas. I promise, they will thank you.
I have two of these bags. And I love them both. I will do a review of my Kelly Moore Ester Bag Soon. I've had it for over a year and it goes with me EVERY SINGLE TIME I travel. It's the perfect travel bag for your camera. Get one. They are fashionable bags for your camera. And seriously, no one will know that it's a camera bag!
My New years Resolution is to print out my photos. ESPECIALLY the photos on my phone! This little printer is SO cute and so portable! Got to have it.
Speaking of printing photos out, Photo books, cards, calendars and prints make wonderful Christmas gifts for photographers( and Grandmothers).
Listen. I am Team Canon. But one of my favorite photographers recently switched to this camera from Canon and another of my favorite photographers shoots with this camera also. Let's just say I'm intrigued…and it would be a wonderful Christmas gift…….
And because I'm LOYAL! LOL. If I ever upgrade my Canon 6D, it will be to this one. Cause…all those focal points….
The strap that comes with your camera is garbage. And that's nothing but truth. It hurts. It makes you not want to carry around your camera for long periods of time. But I've taken my Canon to Disney, to San Francisco, to the park with no problems with this strap. It's perfect and its safe.
I rented this lens last year when we went to San Francisco. It is the perfect travel lens. Seriously, if you are going and you want to be prepared for anything, GET THIS LENS! It's on my to do list for next year.
So that's it folks! Hope you enjoyed this Ultimate Holiday Gift Guide for Photography Lovers! Now get to shopping!!
