Remember those blister foil packs that came with your medicine pills? Don’t throw them just yet because it will be very useful especially if you have an LC-A.

Remember those blister foil packs that came with your medicine pills? Don’t throw them just yet because it will be very useful especially if you have an LC-A.

For this camera mod you need:

  • Blister foil pack that came with your pill at least two of them
  • A pair of scissors
  • Opaque tape
  • LC-A/LC-A+

1. Pop some pills and cut at least two of the blister foils that came with it.

2. Put one of it over the lens of your LCA with an opaque tape

3. Tape the other one over the camera’s viewfinder, in this way you will have an idea how your photo would come out.

4.Now you’re done. Start shooting!

An easy enough modification to do with no lasting effects on your camera, but what about the photos? A smudged out, dreamy effect that removes clarity, but enhances the appearance of your subject! Another plus is that you can easily exchange a clear foil for one with color for some extra distortion.

    Also try crumpled up clingfilm! it's a bit more random, but should work nicely
