5. Accessories Bag

Accessory bad ensures that you always have everything you need. It is important to get a good accessory bag that is comfortable on long photo walks. You don’t want to be distracted by a bag that isn’t designed for comfort.
4. Remote Shutter Release
The remote shutter release is a small standalone device that connects to your mobile phone and allows you to click pictures without being physically near your phone.
Without a remote shutter release device, you need to set timers and then run against the clock to get into position.
The best part is that you don’t even have to buy a remote shutter release. iPhone buds have a remote shutter release feature built-in. So does the Apple watch. In fact, most smart bands or smartwatches allow you to use it as a remote shutter release.
3. Extra Light source
Even though iPhone’s built-in flashlight works in most cases. It is always nice to have more control over your lighting conditions.
You can buy external lighting devices that are small and portable yet powerful and offer a better quality of light. This is especially important for people that like to shoot in low light conditions.
2. External Lens
