Got some old, ratty headphones that you’re planning to throw away? Stop! Repurpose it into a nifty tilt shift lens using this Tipster.
Tilt shift lenses are amazing specialty lenses that sadly, cost an arm and a leg. You can simulate its unique effect with this cheap and simple Tipster designed by Brian Schauer. All you need is a pair of headphones, adhesive, and an old lens you’re willing to hack to your SLR!
Remove both earpads from the headphones. Put adhesive on one side like the photo.
Get the other earpad and carefully align both holes. Stick the ear side together with the ear side of the other earpad.
At this point, you have two options: you can either fashion a lens filter of sorts with a piece of cardboard, or to dismantle a lens. Check out the complete steps here
Curious about the output? Here are some tests shots!
