Do you know someone whose camera needs a little more personality? Then these decorative lens caps from Lens Captions just might do the trick. They have loads of incredible designs, ranging from a beautiful sketch of a tree, all the way to a poop emoji. Yep, you heard that right.
There aren’t many ways to personalize the body of your camera, so these lens caps are a breath of fresh air.
This mug looks EXACTLY like a camera lens. How cool is that? Oh, and did we mention that it stirs whatever liquid you pour into it by itself? It even has an insulated stainless steel interior and it’s perfect for traveling. Needless to say, any photographer will absolutely love it. Just be sure not to accidentally try to use this thing as an actual lens. That would be bad.
If you know a photographer in need of some inspiration, look no further than David Bailey’s book Birth of the Cool: 1957-1969, a fantastic compilation of some of the celebrated English photographer’s best work from 1957 to 1969. I mean, this guy used to hang out with The Beatles and The Rolling Stones, so Birth of the Cool is a pretty accurate name for his book.
Every artist needs a little inspiration once and awhile, and Bailey’s photos are likely to provide it.
