Have you tried taking a picture secretly so that no one will notice you? Or you need to quickly capture some evidence for something bad happening secretly? It isn’t easy to take secret shots but with a few tricks, you should be able to do this without being caught.
Here are some of the ways you can start spying with pictures.
Put your shutter sound off
Before you take any steps make sure that your shutter sound has been turned off. The shutter and flash light should be disabled. You can do this by going to your camera settings on your smartphone. If you are using a camera, disabling can be done on the camera app or camera settings. The reason for this is so that your picture taking does not draw any attention towards your direction.
Hide Your Camera
You can hide your camera inside anything so no one sees it. A camera can be placed in a bow tie, watches, contact lenses books, pockets, etc. and no one will notice that you are taking a picture.
Here are some of the things you can hide cameras in:
USB Spy Shirt
Experts have shown how a USB camera, laptop, and a laptop bag can be used to convert a shirt to a spy camera. The system is threaded in the shirt and then attached to the computer which is inside the laptop bag.
With a pair of glasses, you can capture everything that is happening around you. An example of this type of technology is Google’s project glass.
Camera in a book
This is a very old trick which involves hiding an iPad in a book and opening a small peephole for the camera lens.
Using your smartphone to take hidden pictures.
If you are using your phone to take the picture, make sure you are holding it in a way that it doesn’t look obvious. You can hold your phone like you are texting or playing games on your phone. It might seem a bit difficult getting a good shot in this position but it will do the job of capturing what you need while in a natural position.
Also, if what you intend to capture on camera is behind you, it will be important to hide your screen. Jail-broken iPhones are best for this because of Slycam which will help you easily take a picture from the notification center and no one will see your camera screen.
For people who are not using Jail-broken iPhones, the Easy Calc app can allow you to take pictures and shoot videos using the front facing and rear camera using a fake background feature. Your screen can appear like you’re texting and not taking a photo.
Android users can use an app like Mobile Hidden Camera which looks like a notebook and no one will ever suspect. The app also allows you to shoot videos, take pictures in burst mode, it customizes your screen and also blocks notifications from drawing people’s attention to you.
