Gifts for Photographers
Paper Shoot Camera
As someone who absolutely loves photography, I was so happy when I got my hands on a paper shoot camera. This camera is great for those who loved and still love film cameras. Instead of film though, the paper shoot offers the same film quality only it’s now on an SD card.
The Paper Shoot Camera also allows you to build your own camera. That’s right! I had to put the camera together before I could even use it, which made this an even better experience. If you’re curious as to how the photos come out, you can check out my other post.
I absolutely love using my Lensball, which is a great addition to any photographers bag. With the Lensball the photographer can use it to create refraction photography by magnifying and inverting the scene in front of it. It not only makes the photos unique, but also gives the viewer a different way of looking at things. Amazon sells quite a few different brands, but you want to get the original, Lensball.
