    I'm the best person for this because I'm a professional photog – NOPE – because I always wanted to be an investigator/detective. Yes Jessica we stan that❤😂

    You started with negative energy 😂 critique not criticise .. usually these hack videos are bogus but at least one or two are useful hacks.. the leaf you used was thick and fresh.. they used very dried and small thin leaf so I m wondering if that one would work

    For the mcdo box they used a white box so the light can bounce and act as reflector. I highly doubt the efficiency of this hack but you weren’t suppose to use brown mcdo packaging.

    The leaf tree works, it's actually a really old trick, I use that myself – it works nice with portrait lenses.

    I consider myself an amateur photographer cuz I know a little bit not a lot I'm not like a regular artist I drawer and I paint and you know Chuck are in French and all that in school I've been trying to get better at photography so I know a little but we know like lighting and where the Leighton come from but I don't know a lot about indoor photography like I'm really good with outdoor stuff people say I have a natural eye for it I prefer black and white photos that's my thing I know how to play with the contrast of saturation and the highlights and all of that but I do enjoy taking pictures but it seems like you know once I start thinking about something seriously to do it as like a living or to make money it kind of ruins it for me I don't know why like I was going to start crocheting and selling my stuff you know to make money and as soon as I thought about doing it I like got blocked up on my crocheting and then I was going to say selling phone paintings of people that wanted them and I got like painters blog I'm not even kidding I don't know what it is maybe it's a fear of not doing well I don't know I didn't know if you had any advice for the Hut and how to further my photography abilities I don't really have the money to go to school I was doing a photography course online and I paid for it all up front but I didn't get to finish the courses before it expired so even though I paid for it I didn't get to finish my classes not great

    okay like not to bash you or anything but the reason that mcdonald's box one didn't work for you is because it wasn't white or light; the reason it would work, although they most certainly didn't use that in their final photo, is because the white in the box reflects the light.
    since you're a professional photographer I am sure you know this, and use other things to reflect light just like this, so I'm guessing you just didn't notice the detail.
    just wanted to clarify why it would actually work (:

    5 minute crafts are the worst. Not only a lot of lies..but there are several channels calling out the hacks as actually dangerous, especially some of the "cooking hacks" check out "how to cook that" where she shows how badly you could get hurt if you actually did some of the 'hacks'

    The “Leaf Hack” works well with flower petals. They’re very thin and light passes easily. You get a nice pretty pink thing on the edges of the photo. I used it a lot in my portraits when I used to do photography.

    Oh my God! 5 Minute Crafts (and the other channels just like it) are all super evil. I have seen a lot of tips and tricks that are actually really dangerous, on top of the fact that they do not work. I have seen a ton that while they might not harm you, will definitely destroy whatever you are "crafting". For example, making a super awesome custom phone case by covering your phone with colored hot glue. Straight up just squirting got glue directly on to your phone. I bet there were a lot of people whose phones were ruined by their children because of that one. Also, they showed you have to get pretty, fancy white strawberries by soaking your strawberries in BLEACH!!! (that one is from so yummy, but its from the same content farm) There are a lot more.

    It's crazy when you look up pictures of these content farms. The ones I have seen reminded me of a strange office. A bunch of people in a big room with their own little cubical. But this office instead of a computer and paperwork, they all have a camera and a table with a brightly colored or white background that they are doing things like making cool dessert toppings by pouring melted caramel on a spinning whisk….

    I'm short, 4'11", I can't reach the ceiling of my room just by standing on my bed. My brother is taller… But, I wouldn't consider this trick as a nice hack!

    An SLR photosensitive is different than an iPhone. The hack prob still wouldn’t work but they are very different from an engineering perspective.

    And this will go on until I-phones begin to fall from the cealing onto their faces, breaking their noses, smashing their eyes, or teeth… and they start to sue the influencers that came with this brilliant (fake) ideas. 🙂

    The water drop actually does work as a zoom And you can use it as a magnifying glass by reflecting light. It just kinda stupid to do because water move around allot so make it unstable and hard to use.

    Of course you have to attach that thing to the ceiling in a way that its in the right position and not as sloppy as you actually did. And then don´t use flash! The other photos have been taken with natural light. You should also really lie on the bed instead of having the torso lifted. A nice outfit and matching colours also help.
