Need to give your creative photography a little boost? Get yourself in the right headspace by trying something new. Creative photography products aren’t always cameras and lenses, sometimes it takes a meditation app or a new watercolor set to get your juices flowing. Stepping outside your artistic genre can change your momentum and get you thinking in new ways. Plus, if nothing else, it’s fun!

Here are the nine creative products Click’s Editors are loving right now:

Watercolor set, creative photography

Luxury linen watercolor set

Try your hand at a medium other than photography to heighten your awareness of color, pattern, shape, and form. We love this portable, all-in-one professional watercolor set in a folding linen pouch from Italy. Includes everything you need to begin creating. $150

Polaroid, Creative photography product

Polariod OneStep 2

Get instant gratification with the Polaroid OneStep 2. See something you want to capture forever, snap a photo, and bam — a few seconds later you’re holding the moment in your hands. We can’t wait to play. $99.99

process art handbook, Creative photography product

Play, Make, Create: A Process-Art Handbook by Meri Cherry

Get creative with your kids! We love photographing kids as they create. The message of this book is about focusing on the joy in the process, not on the outcome. Seems like that applies to photography, too. When we are having fun, feeling fulfilled, and taking risks as we shoot, that’s when we create our best work. $24.99

Calm app for creativity

Calm App

We were skeptics at first, too, but then we tried it. Calm is a meditation app that helps with increasing focus, reducing stress, improving sleep, and more. We are all for tools that help us be the best versions of ourselves. $59.99/year

Petzval lens, creative photography product

Petzval 55mm f/1.7 MKII Lens

Need to get out of your comfort zone or break a rut? Look to the new Petzval lens for mirrorless users, now available for Sony E, Nikon Z, and Canon RF mounts. Get the look of a vintage, 180-year-old lens, but with the dependability of modern technology.
