1. The Black Rapid Camera Women’s Strap is designed specifically for women. Part of the award-winning R-Strap line, the Women’s Strap is the world’s first camera strap that focuses on the perfect fit for the female. While maintaining the traditional “Built for Speed” design, BlackRapid’s designers added a sleek curve highlighted with an elegant but slight pattern accent or classic black. This Women’s Strap provides comfort, speed, and durability along with graceful styling. I LOVE my Black Rapid!!
2. Kelly Moore bags are a FABULOUS way to carry your camera gear in style! Who wouldn’t love a bag like this for Christmas? Kelly Moore bags come in a wide range of styles and include bags for both men and women!
3. Check out the Joby Gorillapod SLR-Zoom GP3 Flexible Camera Tripod, and place your camera on almost any surface! Its sturdy prehensile legs help you achieve a steady shot with your SLR camera and zoom lenses. It attaches to any virtually any SLR, video camera, or tripodhead. The Gorillapod SLR-Zoom can support an impressive 6.6 pounds, yet it is remarkably compact and lightweight. A perfect tripod to have on hand for all your family photos where YOU want to be in the shot too!
4. The Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II Camera Lens is a great deal for around $100. If you’re looking for sharper images and love background bokeh, start here. This is the perfect gift for a friend! If you’re looking for the 1.4, it’s about $200 more and a great buy. If you are a Nikon user, check out the Nikon 50mm f/1.8G AF-S NIKKOR Lens.
5.If you’re not using Lightroom 4, you are really missing out! We cannot recommend this program highly enough. This is an indispensible workflow tool that will help you organize and edit your images quickly and easily. If you’re a teacher or student be sure to check out the Student and Teacher Edition for a steal of a deal!
6. Another great editing program we highly recommend is Adobe Photoshop Elements 11. This is a powerful editing program, and a much more affordable alternative to Photoshop CS6.
