With all the popular photo-sharing sites, it seems everyone is a photographer these days. I’ve been playing around with DOF apps lately. People keep telling me that ‘real photographers’ use a camera instead of a smartphone, but I’ve found that with the right app, smartphone photography can still get a passing grade if you know what I mean. If you want to learn some pretty cool tricks, you’ll enjoy these 10 photography hacks (or photography related hacks).
We’ve featured a lot of life hacks on Bit Rebels over the years, but this is the first time I’ve seen a useful list of photography hacks. This video was put together by DigitalRev, and according to PetaPixel, “The hacks range from simple and mildly useful to ingenious.”
So if you’ve ever wanted to know how to create a 360-degree time-lapse for cheap, or other effects like that, this video might be what you need to make it all possible today. This was originally posted on reddit, and if you click over on that link, you’ll also see some other nifty tips and tricks in the comments.
One thing this video taught me is that you don’t have to have a lot of money to be a photographer. Sure, photography lenses and accessories can be expensive. But with a little creativity and ingenuity, sometimes you can create the same effect without the fancy equipment.
I’ve also learned over the past few years that proper lighting is half the battle when it comes to good-looking photographs. Since I have horrible lighting in my house, I have gotten into the habit of taking many of my photos outside in the sunshine. It changes everything when it comes to the quality of the photos. If you are still a beginner photographer like me, you might also find Beginner’s Guide To Better Quality Photography useful. Good luck with these photography hacks!
