4. DIY Soft-Focus Lens Effects

Prepare a large square of clear plastic, elastic band, and some vaseline. Put some vaseline on your clear plastic paper and shoot. If you are using gauze, cut the fabric with scissors in the center and attach it to your camera lens with the elastic band (refer to 3rd photo below). Once you attach your gauze, put loose ends of the fabric over the lens. This will give you a soft-focus lens effect.

The old tea strainer is our next perfect photography hack. This is perfect if you want to use natural light through a window or small opening. Make sure the light is strong enough and the subject is close to the strainer. If you arrange it so, you can get strong shadows which cast beautiful patterns that highlight depth.
