The­mat­ic gifts

What to give a photographer?

If you have a friend or rel­a­tive who is into pho­tog­ra­phy, you are very lucky. Almost cer­tain­ly, you peri­od­i­cal­ly become the own­er of beau­ti­ful and pro­fes­sion­al pic­tures, which are cap­tured in the best pos­si­ble way, for free. There­fore, with the approach of any hol­i­day or the birth­day of the pho­tog­ra­ph­er him­self, you will cer­tain­ly want to give him the best gift. This arti­cle will focus on how to choose the right sou­venir or present for a per­son who loves to take pic­tures.

Photography Accessories

Let’s start with prac­ti­cal gifts. Your friend will be able to use them in the process of his work and will remem­ber you more than once with a kind word and with grat­i­tude. Many pho­tog­ra­phers are not rich, because a cre­ative per­son thinks more about self-real­iza­tion, and not about prof­it. There­fore, pho­tog­ra­phy lovers often need to replen­ish their work­ing kit.

  • Shoot­ing out­doors usu­al­ly lasts a long time, besides, in these con­di­tions there is no way to recharge cam­era bat­tery. A spare por­ful bat­tery in such cas­es helps a lot.

It is he who can be con­sid­ered as one of the options for a pre­sen­ta­tion for a pho­tog­ra­ph­er.

  • Tri­pod to place the cam­era dur­ing shoot­ing is also a very nec­es­sary thing. Of course, if your friend or rel­a­tive is a great pro­fes­sion­al, then he prob­a­bly already has this device. But in this case, it will be use­ful to buy him a light­ight tri­pod for use on trips.

  • Even novice pho­tog­ra­phers accu­mu­late large amounts of footage fair­ly quick­ly. What can say about those who have been doing this busi­ness for many years. Large hard dri­ve or mem­o­ry card with a large vol­ume will def­i­nite­ly not be super­flu­ous in the arse­nal of those who are fond of pho­tog­ra­phy.

  • One of the prob­lems of win­ter land­scape pho­tog­ra­phy is severe freez­ing of fin­gers. For pho­tog­ra­phy lovers, there are spe­cial gloves. They warm the fin­gers and hands, while not com­pli­cat­ing the process of pho­tograph­ing.

If you present such a gift to a pho­tog­ra­ph­er friend for the New Year, this will def­i­nite­ly not go unno­ticed.

  • Per­haps your pho­tog­ra­ph­er friend has spent a lot of mon­ey on pho­to­graph­ic equip­ment, and at the same time is forced to car­ry his work kit in a reg­u­lar bag or bacweack. Mean­while, it’s pret­ty incon­ve­nient. Pro­fes­sion­al pho­to bacweack will great­ly please any­one who is seri­ous­ly involved in pho­tog­ra­phy and often car­ries pho­to­graph­ic equip­ment with him. In a spe­cial bacweack, con­ve­nient depart­ments are pro­vid­ed, in addi­tion, the cam­era and lens­es are max­i­mal­ly pro­tect­ed from dam­age.

  • Could be a good present train­ing book on pho­tog­ra­phy, retouch­ing and com­put­er image pro­cess­ing. Every­one needs to acquire new knowl­edge and improve in their field. Begin­ners will be pleased and use­ful to receive from you a paid pass to a pho­tog­ra­phy sem­i­nar or a sub­scrip­tion to a pho­tog­ra­phy course.

  • If you strong­ly doubt your com­pe­tence in mat­ters of pho­to­graph­ic equip­ment, acces­sories and com­po­nents for it, just give a friend cer­tifi­cate for pur­chas­es in a good pho­to store. In this case, he will be able to choose what he real­ly needs.

Budget options

Usu­al­ly, all pro­fes­sion­al acces­sories and pho­to acces­sories are not cheap. If you still want to present some­thing use­ful to a pho­tog­ra­phy lover, and at the same time are some­what con­strained in funds, you can con­sid­er rel­a­tive­ly inex­pen­sive, but nec­es­sary things for a pho­tog­ra­ph­er:

  • good and strong strap for car­ry­ing the cam­era;
  • set for clean­ing optics;
  • pho­to frames of var­i­ous for­mats and styles;
  • case for com­pact cam­era.

Pleasant little things and souvenirs

Also, a keen pho­tog­ra­ph­er can be pre­sent­ed with any things that will speak about his occu­pa­tion. Most peo­ple are very pleased to receive even a very inex­pen­sive trin­ket, styl­ized as some item relat­ed to their favorite activ­i­ty.

With such a gift, you can sup­ple­ment the main present or give it on the occa­sion of a small hol­i­day.

  • The most pop­u­lar sou­venir from this series at the moment is a tea mug, a ther­mos or a glass in the form of a lens.
  • A t‑shirt for a guy or a top for a girl with a pho­to-themed print is a gift that is always appro­pri­ate.
  • An orig­i­nal key­chain or pen­dant for a bag in the form of a cam­era can please both an ama­teur and a pro­fes­sion­al.
  • Recent­ly, pig­gy banks, which look like a pho­to frame, are gain­ing pop­u­lar­i­ty. All coins lored inside are vis­i­ble through the trans­par­ent glass. When fill­ing such a pig­gy bank, round mon­ey is some­times quite acci­den­tal­ly added up into bizarre com­po­si­tions.
  • For a birth­day, you can order and present a birth­day cake made in the form of a cam­era mod­el. This will amuse not only the hero of the occa­sion, but also the guests of the hol­i­day.
  • Pho­tog­ra­phers them­selves are not averse to get­ting high-qual­i­ty and beau­ti­ful pic­tures with their loved ones. There­fore, it would be very orig­i­nal to give a pho­tog­ra­phy lover a cer­tifi­cate for his per­son­al pho­to ses­sion with a pro­fes­sion­al. Let him try him­self as a mod­el. In par­tic­u­lar, such a present will please the girls.
  • Buy tick­ets to a pho­to exhi­bi­tion and go there with a friend. At such an event, a pho­tog­ra­ph­er can gain expe­ri­ence and just enjoy look­ing at inter­est­ing and high-qual­i­ty pic­tures of col­leagues.

What should not be given?

At the end of the arti­cle, it is worth giv­ing a few tips regard­ing the issue of unwant­ed gifts for a per­son who is seri­ous­ly inter­est­ed in pho­tog­ra­phy. Lis­ten­ing to them will be espe­cial­ly use­ful for those who are not them­selves a pho­tog­ra­ph­er and poor­ly under­stand the nuances of this activ­i­ty.

The only excep­tions are those cas­es when your friend or rel­a­tive has dis­cussed with you the desired gift in advance and named spe­cif­ic mod­els of the com­po­nents or pho­to­graph­ic equip­ment he needs.

  • Do not give a pro­fes­sion­al or semi-pro­fes­sion­al cam­era as a gift. Each pho­tog­ra­ph­er choos­es equip­ment accord­ing to their needs and pref­er­ences. Often you have to spend eks review­ing and com­par­ing the char­ac­ter­is­tics of var­i­ous mod­els, proof­read­ing reviews and read­ing reviews for a par­tic­u­lar mod­el. High cost is not a cri­te­ri­on for uni­ver­sal­i­ty. You can sim­ply not guess with the man­u­fac­tur­er’s brand by giv­ing a friend-pho­tog­ra­ph­er a tech­nique for which he does not have any com­po­nents. There­fore, in order to start work­ing with your gen­er­ous gift, he will have to spend a decent amount of mon­ey on their pur­chase.
  • With lens­es, things are the same. Expen­sive pro­fes­sion­al mod­els have a rather nar­row pur­pose. There­fore, each pho­tog­ra­ph­er selects lens­es, as they say, “for them­selves”. Hav­ing bought an expen­sive mod­el, you risk miss­ing the choice. The one who receives it will be forced to put your gift on the shelf or sell it to col­leagues. In this case, inevitably upset both.
  • Flash­es have a lot of char­ac­ter­is­tics: por, range, bright­ness, etc. In addi­tion, many mod­els are only suit­able for a cer­tain cam­era. Don’t risk point­ing your fin­ger at the sky. With­out under­stand­ing this issue, guess­ing the choice is almost impos­si­ble.
  • For light fil­ters, one of the main char­ac­ter­is­tics is the diam­e­ter. Already in this mat­ter, you are like­ly to be mis­tak­en if you do not dis­cuss your future gift with the pho­tog­ra­ph­er him­self. In addi­tion, all fil­ters, with the excep­tion of the sim­plest, pro­tec­tive and ultra­vi­o­let, are designed for cer­tain shoot­ing con­di­tions.

A per­son igno­rant of pho­tog­ra­phy will sim­ply not be able to choose the right fil­ter as a gift.
