Following up on my previous post where I gave you tips to take better pictures instantly with your smartphone, I will now show you budget-friendly gadgets you can buy that can be attached to your phone and will completely raise the bar when it comes to the quality of your images. 

Whether you're an aspiring photographer wanting to learn more about equipment but can't afford the DSLR, to a blogger needing better images for their Instagram feed, I've got you covered. These awesome tiny gadgets will up your game, I guarantee it!



If you take a lot of selfies, portraits and often use a tripod, you should get this sweet little thing and get hands-free control over your shutter, eliminate blur and camera shake. It's small enough to fit on a keychain making it super convenient to carry around, and the price is definitely right! Did I mention you can choose from a variety of colors? Personally, I like the green one.

If you love taking pictures of landscapes and tiny things like insects or even jewelry, you should seriously check into these small lenses. It sports a universal clip that works on any smartphone or even a laptop! 
A macro lens will capture clear images of small objects or very close close-ups. A wide lens will help you capture more of the scene inside your landscape image. I have a 35mm lens for my Nikon and a 200mm lens and I couldn't live without them. These are awesome!

Having lighting problems? You should check out this light! I bought it to put in my camera bag, it's so well priced and handy! I used to use my flashlight but I love that you can clip this one to pretty much anything, including tree branches! ;)





This thing is amazing, I love it so much I use it more than my big tripod. You can twist its legs in any position to place it anywhere...I mean everywhere seriously! Wrap it onto a pole or tree, hang it on a fence, place it on an uneven surface

If you're interested in buying all of these, they do come in bundles on Amazon, which is where I recommend buying a lot of your photography accessories because after doing a lot of research, I found that most of the time, the price is better on Amazon.

I hope you found this post was helpful in guiding you a little further in making your own amazing images. Because like Ansel Adams once said..."You don't take a photograph, you make it". Brilliant. 

So have fun making those images and feel free to share with me on Facebook! I'm always here to help and to answer any questions you might have!
