Cheap Accessories: Adding Some Education Into the Mix

Enough about cameras and lenses already, right? Who has money for that on a regular basis anyways; the real fun is getting cool new accessories to go with the gear you already have. It could also be picking up a new tutorial or workshop to learn a new skill or improve your current repertoire, maybe something like this awesome Glamour photography tutorial (currently only $39 after $30 savings) from PhotoWhoa. The point is, this post has a little bit of something for everyone, so let’s get into it.

Today’s Deal Stats: 35 deals, totalling an incredible $4,200+ in savings

Today’s Software/Tutorial Highlight: A Guide To Natural Light Newborn Sessions


Shooting newborns is one of those things that looks soooo much easier than it truly is. These little people are hard to control, can be very unpredictable, super messy, and need to eat/poop more than you would think is natural. But fear not, with the help of great guides like this one from PhotoWhoa you can master the art of newborn photography.

Normally this guide is $119, but right now it’s on sale for just $15. If you have any interest at all in shooting newborns, or know someone who is (Mother’s Day gift maybe?) then this is a deal you need to take advantage of.  Get The Deal Here

Today’s Tech Highlight: RAVPower 23000mAh Portable Charger


If you use electronics that need to be charged, then portable powerbanks are something you should always have in your bag. Some newer cameras are coming with the ability to be charged through their USB connection, meaning a powerbank like this could easily save your but at a shoot if you burn through all your batteries. How about your laptop? Forgot your charger, this guy comes with an adapter to charge some laptops. The other obvious use is mobile phone charging.

Regardless, even if you already have a similar back, this monstrous 23,000mAh unit normally sells for $299, but it’s currently on sale at Amazon for just $99… a full $200 in savings. Get The Deal

Today’s Accessory Highlight: Watson Duo Charger


Going with another power-related accessory here, but the Watson Duo Charger has got to be one of my favorite supporting roles of my kit. Shooting long days means going through a ton of batteries, especially as a mirrorless shooter, being able to come home and instantly get two (three if I use the stock Fuji charger as well) batteries charging simultaneously is a life saver.

Normally around $120, these Duo Chargers are currently available for just $79 on Amazon right now. I’ve linked to the Fuji NP-126 model, here. But you can easily grab the correct one for your camera brand, here.
