Lil’ Luna Link Party #56

I am so excited to tell you who the Lil’ Luna Link Party is brought to you by this week!!
It’s brought to you by 3 amazing businesses:

That’s right!
I wanted to do an entire post and review on some DSLR CAMERA ESSENTIALS.
I just bought my first DSLR a few weeks ago, and let me tell you…
I’M IN LOVE!
I knew there would be some items I would need to go with the camera, but there were 3 thing in particular I wanted:

NUMBER ONE:

The Ruffle Camera Strap is from Mel V Designs.

Mel V Designs has some of the most adorable camera accessories for those who enjoy taking pictures with style.

This is the strap I got:

I LOVE it, and I can’t tell you how many compliments I’ve already gotten on it.

NUMBER TWO:

The JoTotes I was able to get was the:

Rose-Marigold

Yellow is my FAVORITE color so I thought it only fitting that I get the Marigold Version.

I absolutely love it and adore the Houndstooth Fabric inside. Not only does it keep my camera safe, but I can also fit in my regular purse items {Wallet, Phone, etc.} and it’s ADORABLE! People always ask “Where did you get your purse?” 🙂

It’s definitely the only way to carry your camera in STYLE!

They also have a variety of colors and styles of their Camera Bags for Ladies.

{Told you they were cute!}

NUMBER THREE:

The Photography EBook is from Katie Evans Photography.

Katie contacted me months ago before I had a DSLR and asked if I could do a review. I told her as soon as I got my DSLR I would. I’m so glad I agreed because her book has been amazing. She teaches a ton about ISO, Aperture and all those crazy, confusing aspects of a DSLR. Her book is definitely a must-have for anyone who recently bought a DSLR and want to learn how to take Good Pictures in No Time!

PLUS, Katie offers tons of tips and Tutorials on her blog for taking better pics too!

And for one lucky reader, they will be getting one of each of these amazing products!

    I LOVE the Black and White Damask Pink ruffle dSLR Camera Strap Cover. I’d give it to my sister (I’m not cool enough to own my own dSLR yet) and I know she’d adore it too 🙂

    I love the JoTote Rose Plum or Rose Teal bag. Again, I’d give to my sis, though, since I just have to live vicariously through her for now. She’d love me forever for it 🙂
