Change your lenses!

Any glasses will do but cheaper plas­tic frames will make things eas­ier

01 Pop out the lenses

Cheap sun­glasses are usu­ally flex­i­ble, and the lenses will sim­ply pop out of if you bend the frame enough. Grip the edges of the lens between the fore­fin­gers and thumbs of both hands, bend the frame in an arc and push out the lens with the tips of your thumbs.

02 Hold and shoot

To take a pic­ture, just hold the lens over your cam­era lens. You should find the cam­era can still fo­cus per­fectly well and you shouldn’t need to make any ex­po­sure ad­just­ments. Set the White Bal­ance to Di­rect Sun­light to stop it try­ing to ‘cor­rect’ the colours.

03 Crafty close-ups

We also bought th­ese cheap +3.5 diopter read­ing glasses. The lenses need more care­ful po­si­tion­ing than the sun­glasses lenses be­cause they’re quite nar­row, but they make per­fect close-up lenses. The qual­ity isn’t great, though that’s part of the charm!
