LTC Gift Guide: Photographer

Lauren EngelComment

A few years ago I got really into photography. I bought an entry level Nikon DSLR and became obsessed with learning how to use it and learning about aperture and shutter speed. Then as my art business grew I picked up my camera less and less until I barely used it at all. It started to feel bulky and I was drawn to using my iPhone to take photos out of convenience. Recently I've been using my Nikon again and I'm reminded why I loved it years ago. While it's not the most professional camera, it takes beautiful bokeh shots and gorgeous portraits. When I am out somewhere and see something I know I want to paint but don't have my supplies with me, it's nice to have a good camera to capture the image to paint it in my studio later. Or even just to keep the beautiful photo and be reminded of the moment. So whether you're an iPhone photographer or a Leica photographer, this gift guide is for you! I included a few fun gifts for the camera obsessed like my Pink Camera Series phone case and this adorable camera necklace; to more practical gifts like the backup hard drive and the Adobe Cloud Photography Plan. Let me know which gift is your favorite and what you're hoping to receive this Christmas?

Diving is one of my biggest passions! Breathing underwater is exhilarating and the colors and creatures below the water are incredible. I've had some of my favorite adventures underwater or on a dive trip. I spent a week with my best friend on a live aboard in Belize. I completed my Divemaster course in Tenerife and saw a rays, loads of Cuttlefish and even a Mola Mola. The majority of our planet is covered in water and I intend to explore it! So this gift guide is dedicated to those who intend to explore it with me. Whether you're above or below the sea, there's a gift for you. I love this new Girls That Scuba tote and that part of the proceeds go to Plastic Ocean. Also, I am obsessed with sharks and my best friend is too. The fact that I can adopt one in her name is absolutely amazing! What are you wishing for for Christmas?
