With Christmas coming up, people are always looking for gift ideas, and it can be hard to buy for the photographer (s) on your list if you're not a photographer yourself.
That said, here's some great Christmas gift ideas for the photographer (s) on your list.
Adobe Photoshop Elements 9 (Win/Mac), Adobe Photoshop CS5, or Adobe Photoshop Lightroom 3 (depending on your budget). Adobe makes the industry standard software for image processing, and all of these programs are top notch.
Rode Shotgun Microphone - if the photographer on your list uses their DSLR for video, then they'll love this shotgun style microphone. I have one and use it all the time. It delivers EXCELLENT quality audio for your video production.
Professional Heavy Duty Ball Head with Quick Release Plate - these are a fantastic value and precision made. I recently bought one and just love it!
Every photographer can use more memory! Transcend makes excellent quality memory cards. They have a lifetime guarantee, and I've been using them exclusively for several years now with no problem.
Photographers love camera bags. You can never get enough! I have WAY TOO MANY, and I just bought a new one a couple weeks ago! This LowePro Slingshot is a great little bag that's light and perfect for quick access.
And of course, I'd be remiss if I didn't put in a shameless plug for our Art of the Image Speedlight Softbox! The perfect gift for any photographer who wants to take their portraits to a whole new level. Check out our Christmas Speedlite Softbox Sale for some great deals!
