    23 Photography Products That Are Actually Affordable

    Take your photos to the next level — even if you're on a budget.

    1. A flexible phone tripod that can bend around doorknobs, fences, furniture and more to ensure you always get the angle you need.

    2. A wireless remote control so you can take your own photos without having to turn on the timer, run, pose, and hope the photo was actually in focus.

    3. A fringe curtain perfect for photo backdrops at parties or any shoot that you want to feel fun and festive. With a strip of self-adhesive at the top, it's *super* easy to hang on the wall.

    4. A waterproof phone pouch so you can master the art of underwater photography... or at least not damage your phone when you want to take some poolside selfies.

    5. A pack of microfiber cleaning cloths that'll rid your camera or phone lens of smudges and finger prints, to make sure your photos are coming out crisp and clear.

    6. A two-in-one clip-on cellphone lens kit with a wide angle lens to help largely expand the field of view and a macro lens to capture clear, detailed photos at a distance.

    7. An extendable selfie stick that connects to Bluetooth so you can snap pics at the click of a button. It's compact and easy to carry around, making it perfect for traveling.

    8. A camera tripod, because it's lightweight with adjustable-height, you can securely lock your camera in, and you can tilt and swivel, giving you a sturdy, yet moveable base to capture your photos and videos. Plus, it comes with a carrying case.

    9. A reliable SD card for shooting and uploading all of your content with ease.

    13. A clip-on LED selfie light so you never have to worry about if a location has crappy, dim overhead lighting. Simply clip this over your phone's camera lens, choose your brightness, and snap your ~glowing~ selfie.

    14. Or a ring light with an adjustable tripod stand and cellphone holder guaranteed to be any aspiring influencer's most prized possession. It can be used for filming videos, taking photos, and even doing makeup when you find yourself suffering from a severe lack of natural lighting.

    15. A plain white backdrop, because you can never go wrong with a simple, clean photo background. You'll be using this again and again for headshots, flatlays, conceptual shoots, and more.
