Female photographers are an amazing creative force you have to appreciate at all costs. Not only are these women artsy and deep, they always have a unique view on things. Being non-trivial is their specialty.
But what do you give to a photographer girl? We teamed up with bebemur.com to understand what gifts artsy women like and what will be an unexpected present. Here is a list of what you can purchase for a female photographer to truly impress her:
1. A tripod
A flexible tripod is always needed in the household. There are different types of tripods, but most of them look like many large beads and a fixator on top. You want to go for a sturdy model that can hold a heavy camera. Some tripods are made for iPhones and Androids, and others will be perfect for a Canon or Nikon camera.
2. A camera stabilizer
If your girl works with dynamic shots or videos, the best choice will be a stabilizer. But what is a stabilizer? It looks like a selfie stick, but its use is not only for holding a camera. Regardless of camera movements, a good stabilizer makes the shot perfect and not shaky. If you film short clips or even at-home movies with lots of running, driving and jumping, a stabilizer will help you capture every move.
3. An external hard drive
Hard drives are traitors for photographers because artsy people never have enough storage in their computers. If your girl always edits photos and stores everything on her Mac or PC, she will need more space sooner or later. The best thing about an external hard drive is its handiness. Once you are done with work, you can unplug the drive from the port and keep all that information in physical storage. It’s like a USB but with a couple of terabytes of memory.
4. Licensed Photoshop and Lightroom
Adobe creates unique products photographers can’t live without. But the only drawback of these splendid products is their price. Photoshop costs more if you constantly upgrade it and buy additional plugins, so purchasing a Creative Cloud for your photographer girl will be a dream come true.
5. Polaroid camera
Who doesn’t want to get instant snaps? Even if your girlfriend works with heavy machines, it’s best to have something lighthearted as a switch. A good-old Polaroid will never be out of fashion because it allows you to instantly print photos to make cute collages in your bedroom. In addition, they come in a variety of colors which can be an additional thoughtful touch. Even if the camera doesn’t provide the best quality compared to professional Canons, it’s good for a hobbyist or a photographer in a retreat.
6. A lightbox studio
So what is a lightbox studio? It consists of white fabric and lights that come in a box shape. So why do you need it? For better lighting, of course! People who work with studio photoshoots need this additional perk to create light without shadows that work perfectly with portraits and commercial photoshoots. In addition, studio lights can be portative and stationery.
7. An external flash
If your girl does photograph professionally, she might need an external flash because it instantly creates a difference. These things can be attached to different cameras and work best with dim lighting to preserve focal length and still have clear photos.
8. An external macro lens
Macro lenses are cool as heck because they work like a microscope. You can attach this lens to any camera and shoot macro photography where objects go through 1:1 to 1:2 magnification. Try to take a picture of a bug under that lens! It’s fun to play with magnified shots and even sell these photos on stock markets where they have great popularity!
