Lately I received some questions about how I edit my photos. The truth is, I don't edit my photos that much. And whatever I do in Photoshop really isn't that special. So I decided to start with posting some basic tips and tricks. This is an easy and cheap way to get a soft, hazy, light leak, vintage effect in your photos!

What you need:
- A small transparent plastic bag
- An elastic band or a hairtie (optional)
- Colored markers (optional)

Step 1: Get your plastic bag, and use your hands to tear a hole in the bottom. 
Step 2: Slide it over your camera lens, with the teared hole a little past the end of your lens.
Step 3 (optional): I prefer to secure the bag with an elastic band or a hairtie. But it isn't necessary since you'll still be holding the bag to keep it in place.
Step 4 (optional): You can give the edges of the bag some color with colored markers.

 This is the effect I get without using a colored marker.

On this photo I colored the edges of the bag with a pink colored marker.
