15 must-haves for your DSLR.
Everybody who has been into photography would know how overwhelming the accessories can be. The number of accessories you need to possess can be very misleading, especially if you've just started your adventure. So, we're presenting a must have list which you'll be needing at some point or the other.
15) SPEEDLIGHT FLASH:
aka flashgun. Even if there's a decent built in flash, you'll find this more comfortable when you want to shoot in a low light area.
14) MINI SOFTBOX for SPEEDLIGHT:
While huge softbox can be a pain, this will come handy as y'll know how good a photo looks with diffused light.
If you can't afford them and are left with only then built-in flash, this would be your holy-grail. This functions essentially as a softbox.
When you can't just use flash, for instance in outdoor shoots, having light reflectors can be very useful.
After all the efforts, if you still don't find the photo up to the mark. The dust in the lens could be the little devil. At such cases, blower can help you fight against.
10) LENS PEN:
This is for the stubborn dirt and grime, it is double sided with a brush on one side, brownie points to that.
9) MICROFIBER CLOTH:
Doctors recommend it for our skin, for our lens which is even more delicate. Should we say that it is a mandatory one?
For that razor sharp stance in your photos and for some long exposure fun shots.
7) SPARE BATTERY:
We've all been through days where it gets tiring and we forget to charge our battery. Now now, you don't want your trip to ruin because of an empty battery, do you?
6) HARD DRIVE:
Invest in this external hard drive to make sure you don't lose all your strenuous works.
5) f1.8 LENS:
It is not surprising that many photographers own this. It works great in low light and inevitably performs better than the lens kit we have.
4) UV FILTER:
When you're doing landscape photography, this would be very helpful to prevent that bluish tint on the photograph. Best part is that you can always leave it on your lens for that extra protection.
3) REMOTE SHUTTER RELEASE:
When you're trying to be a lone wolf and attempting self portraits. Did I say it reduces vibrations during long exposure shots as well?
2) KEYBOARD SHORTCUT SKIN:
While post processing, we all keep forgetting the command short cuts. This would definitely increase your productivity.
1) ND FILTER:
This one is my personal favorite, the neutral density filter can bewitch your photograph. Go for it and you won't be disappointed.
