Who doesn’t love all the neat effects you can add to photos on software apps?! You can go #nofilter when the right moment strikes and you’re able to capture amazing natural lighting and effects. But, most of the time the world can look pretty bland without filters. Did you know you can also use physical things to make cool effects without a digital filter?
Top 5 Unusual Objects as Photo Filters
- Sunglasses (polarize or add gradient to pictures; learn how in link above)
- Nylons (use pantyhose to give a soft muted effect to portraits)
- Negatives (use the end of film camera negatives in front of lens to add a neat effect like that on bottom right)
- Magnifying glass (get up close and personal with this macro lens effect); a drop of water on your smart phone lens can also give a macro lens effect but be careful not to get the phone wet! Either use a Lifeproof case or skip the water.
- Colored glass (give a really neat effect by holding lens up against colored glass such as Mason jars or bottles like that on top right)
In addition to the quick, easy sunglasses as a photo filter hack you can also learn how to do amazing things with an inexpensive little camera!
Compact, point-and-shoot cameras are convenient, travel-ready, and inexpensive. They’re also more capable—and complex—than ever. In Getting Pro Results from a Compact Camera, photographer Derrick Story shows how to use a compact camera to take photos that rival those of far more expensive cameras. Derrick shows how to get the most out the camera’s lens as you shoot wide-angle, telephoto, and even macro shots. Derrick also discusses the camera’s exposure system and clarifies the differences among ISO settings and scene modes. He also shows how to get the best pictures in a variety of lighting conditions, including making judicious use of the flash to supplement existing light.
- Understanding ISO
- Stitching a panorama
- Using exposure lock
- Using the flash indoors and out
- Adapting professional techniques to small cameras
