Federico Sartorio @ Photo.net explains how to get people to smile for your pictures.
Tired of being unable to take good photos of your friends / kids? Here’s my tutorial on how to create the cheapest and wackiest hot-shoe attachement for your camera.
PEZ makes people smile!
Here are three easy steps:
- buy a PEZ sweet dispenser in any grocery store, the more ridiculous, the better
- using a cutter, trim the feet of the dispenser, leaving a 2-3 mm wide plastic strip on each side. Check the width of your camera’s hot shoe if you are not sure
- slide the dispenser in the hot shoe of your camera, it should fit naturally!
Federico claims success:
Now you are ready to shoot! The best use for this attachement is to make people laugh and quickly snap a joyful portrait of them. You can then reward them with a sweet for added happiness. I’ve tested it on kids and friends and it works most of the time!
