If we like to click and get clicked so much, then why should we not try to make our photos stand out from the thousands of pictures being uploaded every hour on social media? But not all of us are properly trained or have the add-ons and tools required to click amazing pictures. But, fret not, here we are about to tell you some ways through which you too can click some wonderful pictures and most of these are simple DIY hacks. SO take a look at them and then just go ahead and SAY CHEESE:
1 Create a hazy environment with a sandwich bag
The hazy effect in any picture can create moments of excellence and brilliance. The beautiful faces become more beautiful with that effect and give the entire scene a dreamy feel. Do it by using a sandwich bag. Place it near the lens and see for yourself, what amazing effects are created.
2 A bean bag tripod
You need to take pictures of subjects placed at a height and do not want shaky images. So take a bean bag, place your camera on it, and then just find the perfect moment and click. No more adjusting needed.
3 DIY Bokeh filters to create interesting photos
Bokeh is basically the quality of the out of focus area, which can be made interesting with certain filters in heart or star shapes. You just have to put the filter in front of the camera lens, and adjust to a longer shutter speed to click pictures with an out of focus area which has been made beautiful by those shapes lingering around the subject.
4 A DIY lens hood made from a coffee sleeve
Now, the lens of the camera is the most important things which always need to be protected, and a lens hood does this job. But, you have to buy one; you can make it yourself with a coffee sleeve. And the hood will also help in reducing the lens flare and make your pictures clear without too much lighting.
5 Lentils will reduce the camera shake
Holding up a camera for the perfect picture is a big task, and there is always this fear of a camera shake which can ruin the moment to be captured. To avoid this, put some lentils in a solid bag or jeans, and place it below your camera. This will greatly reduce the shaking of camera.
6 Use a ring flash

7 Add DIY interesting backdrops
A backdrop can make the subject look all the more attractive and alive in the photograph. It adds doses of fun and adventure and can make the photograph look like it has been clicked at a studio.
