“Photography is the story I fail to put into words” – Destin Sparks
Every blog written earlier almost has its gift ideas related to photography in some way or the other, like a collage/ silhouette/ canvas print/ art/ pencil sketch etc. Photo related gifts are so special, unique, personalised and above all, they are heartfelt because it is the happiest moment in a frame.
We have talked about various photo gifts for our loved ones on special occasions/ events, but this blog is for photographers, people who love photography or for those who want to pursue photography as a career.
A blog on gift ideas for photographers or photography lovers on account of World Photography day- 19th August.

Digital photo frame-
For success, self evaluation is one of the most important criteria.

Photography professional gifts:
You need not always have to take a picture, copy it into your computer and print them. Sometimes as we capture photos in some magical moment, having the same photo naturally as a printed one without any correction is also required. This is the best way to observe, analyse and learn. All we need is a polaroid camera.
check www.amazon.in for various types of polaroid cameras, to gift for better learning.
Instant mobile photo printer-
Mobile phones also have a lot of improvised versions of cameras that are efficient and effective. There may be many opportunities for a perfect shot but the camera may not be with you. The perfect shot is caught on a mobile phone.
Instead of copying into a computer, directly print in an instant mobile photo printer. A simple but most needed gadget for a photographer right?
A bit costly affair but the most wanted one for a professional photographer. There are endless options for drones in the market. If you are choosing this for your dear one, then let it be themselves who decide on type, brand and as per their need.
As we always say, the right gift at the right time is always the best gift for your loved ones. If your dear is a photographer or future photographer, try these useful, encouraging and unique gifts for their special occasion/ event.
