1. MAKER OF THE SHINY THINGS

You have opinions on fonts, color palettes and proper kerning. You know why using a Micron pen even for meeting notes is the way to go, but you also have special writing tools for everything from your tablet to your sketch books. You may have been called the “maker of shiny things” at least once but while you might roll your eyes, it’s OK, because you love to create things for your church.

YOUR CHRISTMAS WISHLIST:

  1. Wacom Bamboo Tablet (or other similar tablets) is an essential for many designers who like the precision of using a pen for their design work.

3. FOUND BEHIND THE SCENES

Your gear is basically an extension of yourself. You know what it’s like to have to get up super early or stay up super late to get the right lighting/environment/set-up for your shots. You may have a lot of essentials on your gear list – but it’s all worth it to serve your church by capturing amazing moments and sharing them with others.

4. WEARS ALL THE HATS

Let’s be honest, you are a team of one. Since you have multiple responsibilities your main wish list contains time-saving essentials that let you do all of your tasks just a little bit quicker. Your gear tends to be minimalistic so that you can streamline and get the most you can done for your church.
