“We all know about selfie sticks, but beginner-friendly photography equipment is more necessary than ever. While my favorite at-home setup might be the Canvas Lamp, my go-to for on-to-go photos and video are the SnapGrip Creator Kit tools, which include a lightweight tripod that fits in your purse, a ring light, and a snap-on digital camera-like power bank (that pulls triple duty as a grip and stand, too). All the tools operate with MagSafe tech, meaning they clip to a steady magnet you can attach to your phone. I love the power bank—which features a Bluetooth-compatible shutter button—for when I want to take more cinematic-style images, and the tripod makes capturing the best angles easier than ever.”—Lauren Puckett-Pope, culture writer
