Christmas Gifts for Photographers

Here are a few ideas of what to get your photographer friends for Christmas. I offer this as a public service to all those looking to purchase a gift or stocking filler for the photographer in their life and definitely not a big hint to my wife as to what I would like for Christmas.

Books
A couple of good books have come my way this year that I can recommend to photographers of all abilities:

The Photographer's Eye: Composition and Design for Better Digital Photos
by Michael Freeman

This is a great book to help you really start thinking about composition.



The Moment It Clicks: Photography Secrets from One of the World's Top Shooters
by Joe McNally

Either enjoy the great pictures in this, learn how they were made or do both!

For beginners I will as per usual recommend Understanding exposure:


Books I haven't read but look like they might be of interest (if someone was to buy them for me) are:


Accessories

SanDisk CompactFlash 4GB Extreme III Memory

You can't have too many memory cards!



Op/tech Rainsleeve
I have been rained on a lot this year & some of these would have come in very handy!



Spudz Cleaning Cloth
Ideal for wiping sea spray off filters - though the camo print one does seem like a good idea ...drop that & you'll never find it again!

That should be enough to get you started, I'll be posting another blog on this subject as soon as I find some more goodies I fancy that make good presents for photographers.
