5 Pro Tips for Clicking the Most Amazing Photos

Use sandwich bags to make your photos blurry

There is something very enigmatic about the blurry effect on pictures- and truth be told, it can be done for absolutely free. All one needs to do is cover the lens of the camera with a sandwich bag before clicking the picture. The results will be hazy perfection.

Create shadows with a tea strainer

If you want shadows in your picture that add a lot of depth to the image, your best choice would be a tea strainer. Holding a strainer above your lens and placing the subject close to it will allow the strainer to cast intricate patterns on it through natural lighting. It is a priceless way to create aesthetic images.

Use images on your laptop for a backdrop

Suppose you have a submission deadline on the charts, but still haven't been able to find the perfect background for your shot. Don't worry- just Google an image that resembles the image you had in mind, place the object carefully in front of your screen, and click. Unfortunately, this hack won't be that effective for human portraits but can work quite well for small, inanimate objects.

Get some pantyhose for a soft-focus filter

Getting a filter was never this easy. To get a soft-focus filter on your lens, wrap a piece of pantyhose over it and hold it in place by using rubber bands. The soft mesh of the material brings an element of diffusion to the picture at practically no extra cost at all.
