The holidays are coming whether you like it or not and whether you're ready or not. In the event that you know you're not ready, here is a quick gift list with a number of different ideas for any film photographers that you may have in your life.
In this video from photographer Noah Henderson, we see a number of quick ideas ranging from film, to accessories, to camera bag staples that could put a holiday smile on the face of any photographer you know (none of which are going to break the bank, which is hugely appreciated). Don't worry, a brand new mirrorless camera isn't on the list, because let's be honest, as much as you may want something like that, most of us know that we definitely don't need it. This is a more practical list; think of it like stocking stuffers and generally always useful things (which, let's be honest, make for the best gifts). After all, gifts given with thought, love, meaning, and gifts that will actually get used are all stellar.
As the holidays get closer and closer, you'll no doubt be seeing more and more lists, holiday buying guides, sale information, and everything in between. What I like about this video is that it's geared towards the film photographers that you may know. As one would expect, film is on the list and is the one thing that you know the recipient is absolutely going to put to use. I don't know about you, but when I'm giving gifts to my friends and family, if I believe that they're going to put whatever it is to use, I feel a lot better about it.
