Parrot Bebop 2 Drone ($399.99)
Drone photography is steadily growing in popularity—and
for good reason! It’s really useful (not to mention ridiculously
fun) to have a bird’s eye view of the world. Parrot offers a
range of drone options, but the Bebop 2 is a great choice for
beginners. And with the immersive goggles included, you can
feel like you are soaring above the treetops! You can even use
your drone to capture creative shots of yourself, so next time
you’re at the Grand Canyon, you can show off some of the
splendor around you.
Bagsmart Travel Organizer Case (Starting at
You can have all the cool photography tools in
the world, but they won’t do you any good if you
can’t store them in an organized, easy-to-transport
manner (otherwise you will end up leaving them
at home). That’s why having an organizer case is
so handy. Bagsmart offers a wide range of options, allowing you to keep all your photography
gear together for easy access.
Depending on where you plan to shoot, there are other essential apps and gadgets
you should bring along on your trip. If you spend a lot of time around water and enjoy
taking snapshots of your activities, be sure to check out Catalyst’s waterproof case
on page 30. Also, remember that taking videos and pictures uses a lot of juice; we
recommend investing in a power bank (page 28) if you want to extend your battery life.
And for those of you who love using filters in post processing, be sure to check out
Darkroom (Free) and VSCO (Free). Enlight ($3.99) and Adobe Photoshop Fix (free)
are great tools for altering your images in fun, creative ways as well.
