- Having trouble with lighting, understandable, everybody has trouble with lighting. Yet there is a trick of getting a soft light for your pictures. All you need is just a camera with a flash and a paper bag.

Finally, you can post a pic and say #nofilter without lying to yourself.

Yet you can’t seem to find a couple of thousand dollars lying around for a dolly? Don’t worry as there is a much easier way of doing that shot. You just have to put your camera on a flat surface and put a blanket under it. Then by moving the blanket to whichever direction you’ll get a smooth moving shot with your camera.
