My Photography Gift List For Santa

Does Santa ask you for your Christmas list? Every year he requests mine, even though I explain I don't really need anything.

This year I thought I'd go ahead and make one for him, just in case he has my blog in his google reader.

A few things I'd like.

Anything from ShutterSisters makes my heart happy.
Expressive Photography: The Shutter Sisters' Guide to Shooting from the Heart

Santa can't afford this, but I thought I'd give him something to think about for next year.
Canon EF 100mm f/2.8L IS USM 1-to-1 Macro Lens for Canon Digital SLR Cameras

Canon EF 100mm f/2.8 L Macro Lens

So I'll be a bit more practical.
Sandisk 8GB Extreme CF memory card - UDMA 60MB/s 400x (SDCFX-008G-P61, Retail Package)

I lost my 16GB card (ouch) so need to replace it. Going small for price. Santa is on a budget, you know.

In the vein of being practical I really NEED this to calibrate my monitor.


Yes. I need a cookbook so I can photograph more cookies. Don't you agree?
Vegan Cookies Invade Your Cookie Jar: 100 Dairy-Free Recipes for Everyone's Favorite Treats

Within the Frame: The Journey of Photographic Vision
I have a bit of a crush on David DuChemin. I need to add these two books to my library or iPad.

Vision & Voice: Refining Your Vision in Adobe Photoshop Lightroom (Voices That Matter)

And then I'll just be extra practical and ask for a new battery. I have a grip, but only one battery.  It needs a friend.

Canon LP-E6 Battery Pack for Select Canon Digital SLR Cameras

So there is my list.  If you are writing your own list and need ideas you may want to check:

And for the buying record, I think the lens coffee cups are clever, but I really don't understand drinking from one :).

Santa has been good to me in the past, let's see what he has in store this year. What are you asking him for?

The Sypder is just awesome - I use it and it is so simple! People write about complicated process of calibrating the monitor and this is a snap. If Santa doesn't come through you need to just get it! said...

Santa came early this year, a 60D arrived Monday from B&H but the memory card from Amazon is still not here so I look at her and know Someday...
Could you talk about lenses sometime. Tell us what you like about the 100m and any others that you recommend? TIA my friend.

I wrote "Santa" about that book from Shutter Sisters as well. Can't wait to get it next month!!
Have a happy Thanksgiving, Katrina.

That Canon lens is a beauty. I wish Santa could afford it too. :)
