Sometimes, photographers like me don't want to leave the house but still have the desire to get creative, and I think I may have found the perfect way to shoot from home while avoiding the outdoors (and other people) on a typical rainy Sunday.
I made some purchases this weekend that have taken my at-home photography set up to a new level, with Cyber Monday savings that allowed me to justify these impulse buys. I already own the Sony A7III mirrorless camera, which is one of the best cameras for streaming, but I was missing a plain backdrop, mini tripod, and light source to bring my ideas to life.
Below I'm going to share with you the photography deals that won me over this Black Friday/Cyber Monday and why I think you might like them too, whether you shoot with one of the best cameras or one of the best camera phones.
