Everyone has a camera nowadays, and most people fancy themselves some sort of photographer. But most people, even if they have a photographer’s eye don’t have the equipment to take professional-looking pictures.
Although anyone can take high resolution pictures with their smart phones now, professional photography is about a lot more than high-rez. And the equipment necessary is extremely expensive. However, you don’t need to be rich to be able to get the same effects. There are tons of hacks that let you use every day items to achieve the same, or similar, results the professionals do. Some won’t even cost you a dime.
Just use a toilet paper role to make a macro lens.
Smear a bit of Vaseline on the outer rim of your lens to get this stylistic effect.
You just need a window and some paper to make your own lightbox.
