Tethering your DSLR as a high resolution could be frightening because of the super crisp details it can capture. Even the tiniest of my pores could be seen!

Tools of the trade

One of the most basic filters that a photographer can't live without is the Circular Polarizing Filter (CPL). It helps to see beneath the reflection of water surface or glass, and it also makes the sky more dramatic.

ND Filters act like sunglasses that bring one or more f stops depending on the strength. ND2, ND4 and ND8 are commonly used to create magical effects like blurry waterfalls during the day. An extremely dark ND400 is used to make long exposures during the daytime. I prefer the round screw type filters than the huge square filters because they are more discreet and you can leave them on.

UV Filters may not be as required as it was during the days of film since digital sensor handle UV well, but these filters add an extra layer of protection to the lens. Try also a 720nm Infrared Filter for creative effect.

We have our own preference of carrying our cameras around. Some like the old camera neck straps,but I like hand grips better because it feels more intimate.

A 5 feet tripod is a good way to stabilize your images/videos. Some can even go taller.

lens hood can block out glare from the lens whether you're indoor or outdoor, and these greatly benefit the contrast of your images/videos. A rubber hood is more flexible than the hard plastic one.

The mini world of macro photography is surreal. If you haven't tried macro photography yet, you can achieve it by using macro extension tubes, macro lens filter, and reverse rings which have their own pros and cons.
