For the purposes of this post, we're going to assume that the friend, family member or loved one on your gift list already has camera, lens and a general purpose tripod (although more is always better!). With those items covered, below are a few items that can help augment just about any photographer's kit (even your own, if Santa leaves a bit of cash under the tree).
