All I Want for Christmas – PhotoShelter Style

All I Want for Christmas – PhotoShelter Style

Banging your head trying to figure out what to get your friends (or yourself) for the holidays? Not only are PhotoShelter users great photographers, they’re also pretty entrepreneurial as well. Here are a few gift ideas created by the PhotoShelter community.

1. Gura Gear
Wildlife photographer Andy Biggs started his own line of photo bags this year, and was showing it off at the PhotoPlus Expo in Oct. They are super lightweight, and have a side-flap-style opening, which is pretty darn handy.


2. Books
Former PopPhoto contributor and HDR enthusiast, Jack Howard, penned a book entitled Practial HDRI: High Dynamic Range Imaging for Photographers. He’s been writing about HDR for years, so this is the definitive guide to this cool technique.


Of course, let’s not forget Darrell Young’s great book Mastering the Nikon D300 and the upcoming companion book on the D700.

3. Honl Flash Products
Turkey-based photographer, David Honl, created a set of flash modifiers (snoots, grids, etc) for your flashes. If you’re a Strobist enthusiast, you’re going to want grab a few of these. I use it. Shouldn’t you?

4. Strobist Lighting Video
Speaking of the Strobist, David Hobby (aka Strobist) created a fantastic DVD series that teaches you how to light like a pro with inexpensive flashes. The DVD is now back in stock and ready for order.


5. A Beautiful Print
BCS? Lame! Here’s a beautiful print from Texas-based photographer, Darren Carroll. Great for any Texas football fan:

Got a great gift idea that we should add? Lemme know!

    Thanks for the shoutout on the book, Allen! I’m totally digging the Lensbaby Composer right now! Everyone needs one of these. I’m digging the Pinhole/ZonePlate, and all the curvy optics, too. I’m also digging Think Tank’s Shape Shifter backpack. This is a killer bag for the photojournalist’s basic kit.
