Gift Ideas: For the Photographer (or Wannabe)

In just a matter of time I’m going to be ordering a dSLR. I’m just waiting for a couple more things to fall into place and then there you go BOOM dSLR in my hands after a million and two years of wanting one SO badly! I know I’m going to have so much to learn once I get one. A dSLR doesn’t mean instant gorgeous pictures, will it can to a certain extent depending on what you’re shooting with now but not entirely.

There is a lot of learning that you’re going to have to do and even if you just have a point and shoot there is STILL a lot you need to learn! Here are the top five books on my wish list when it comes to learning my camera. I chose these books because I plan on taking pictures of the kids more than anything! I already own Mamarazzi but the rest I still need to acquire and speaking from someone who knows what a Photographer or WANNABE photographer wants especially a Momtographer these would make great gifts for ANY Mom or Photographer in your life!

Word to the wise, they also make great unique baby showers gifts!

    I’ve heard awesome things about that Mamarazzi book! It looks great. I really want to read it and learn my DSLR one of these days before Austin is away at college lol

    I have the Mamarazzi & Your baby in pictures and both books are awesome. My favorite is Mamarazzi the details in this book are great. But I also love your baby in pictures as she breaks it down month by month.
