You can’t argue with the fact that the best camera is the one you have on you, right? Most of us have our phone (and subsequently the camera on the phone) permanently infused to our hands, so for me, at least, the camera I’m usually shooting with is my iPhone.
A lot can be done with just your phone’s camera and a lot of fun can be had. The crazy kids over at COOPH have released another pretty awesome and totally fun video showing 8 DIY tricks you can do with your smartphone to get some really fun shots. From making a DIY drone – which can be a little scary (but hey, you have insurance on that 6+ right?), to turning your phone into a pinhole camera or a projector, this video has some great ideas for when you’re bored on a Monday afternoon.
I love the DIY drone idea (Tip #1), which has you attaching your phone to a “big a** balloon” and using a remote trigger to get some aerial shots. Just be careful that your phone doesn’t come crashing down to Earth though! I also like Tip #6 – taking an Inception Selfie. For some reason it just made me laugh and it’s better than 95% of the selfies I see on Instagram! Personally, I’ve done tip #2 before – only because I discovered it by accident. It has you using your sunglasses as a filter. Brilliant!
So watch the video below, grab your smartphone and go out and have some fun with these!
