About the project

With today’s technology, it’s easier than ever for photographers to create images that are not only breathtaking but also ignite our sense of wonder. Often, this is through photo manipulation in programs like Photoshop. But photographer Mathias Fast has recently introduced a fantastic photography hack that will give your images a fantastical, ethereal feel without you having to know your way around a computer.

(Although it helps.) He simply uses his phone screen to add a reflective element to an image that makes an otherwise grounded composition feel like it’s floating.

There are a number of benefits to this clever photography trick, which requires nothing more than a smartphone and DSLR camera. “By using a phone screen as a reflective surface,” Fast explains, “it is possible to cover up unsightly elements, add intrigue, and make an image that much more interesting.” (Source: mymodernmet.com)

Phone Screen Hacks.

You can easily perform this photography hack. Start by holding your phone horizontally at the bottom of your camera lens. At that point, look through the DSLR viewfinder. You’ll see part of your composition reflected onto the lower half of the image. Based on what you see, adjust your phone slightly—but still hold it close to the lens—to get the reflection you want. Then, snap your picture and you’re done!
