Photo, Video & Audio Gift Ideas

Behind the Shot

Nov 18 2022 • 48 mins

A few episodes ago I talked about how I edit and finish some of my images in the episodes on Dodge & Burn + and Photoshop + Nik Color Efex Pro + Nik Silver Efex Pro. After those shows went live I received a few comments from people that they didn't own some of the software I mentioned, like Adobe Lightroom, Photoshop, or the DxO Nik Collection of plugins. That got me thinking that maybe some gift ideas might help some people. All of the things I mention in this show will make great gifts for the upcoming holidays, but if you watch this after the holidays don't worry! These gifts are timeless. In this show I break down some suggestions into categories as follows: Software Hardware Accessories Services Store Suggestions In some cases, where I don't have a preference or the experience with a particular product, I may mention a gift idea without making a specific product suggestion. Mainly, I want to pass on things that I know, use, and / or just like. Lastly, none of the links below are affiliate codes! I make nothing off any purchases made through these links, but do note that I do have some discount codes on this site. Hopefully these suggestions will make shopping for the photographer, videographer, podcaster, or general creative in your life easier.
