Contrary to popular belief, you don't need to be a professional photographer with tricky-looking and expensive equipment to produce great pictures. Sometimes, all you need is your phone and random things found in your house! If you're wondering where and how to start, Laureen Uy shared great tips in her recent video. Keep on scrolling to learn some of her photography hacks:
If you've always been curious about how to score the multi-color effect on photos, all you need is a CD and your phone's flash. Just point the iridescent side of the disc on a blank wall and shine your phone flash on its surface. According to Laureen, this trick works well in either light or dark backgrounds.
To score a dreamy, blurry effect, simply put Cling wrap on your phone camera's lens and apply a bit of petroleum jelly on it.
Directing your phone's flash on the glass will give you a pretty ripple effect that works best in plain walls or backgrounds.
