How To Take Sneaky Photos On Your Phone--We Swear It's Not As Creepy As It Sounds

December 30, 2015 by Francesca Giordano
shefinds | Style

You’re sitting at lunch and you see your favorite celebrity walk into the restaurant. It looks like they are having an intimate meal with who ever they are rumored to be dating that month, so you don’t want to interrupt.  But how can you tell your friends you saw so-and -so without any proof? Don’t you worry, we have the solution! Here are three ways to be creepy and snag that picture without anyone knowing.

1. Fake a selfie or a lipstick check

Open the camera app on your phone and pretend like you are taking a selfie. Instead of having the camera faced towards you, you will use the back camera. The key is to make it look like you are taking a photo of yourself so that the celeb never suspects a thing, but make sure to keep your phone at a good enough angle to snag a photo of the real subject. If selfies aren’t your thing, pretend that you are fixing your makeup with the camera of your phone!

2. Use iPhone glitches to your advantage

Unfortunately, this only works on iPhones. Open your camera app and immediately tap the home button so that the multitasking screen comes up. The viewfinder of your camera should still be working even in the multitasking bar. This means your camera is still in use. This is where taking a photo with your volume key comes in handy. Use the volume button to take a picture. That way, no one in front of you or behind you will know you are taking a picture!

Refer to this YouTube video if you need extra help:

3. SlyCam

This is by far the best app I’ve ever discovered. SlyCam allows you to choose various “screens” for your phone and with just a tap of the screen, you can take a picture. It’s so sneaky, you can almost convince yourself you never took the picture to begin with. You have 3 options for your “screen” – your photo albums, iTunes or a black screen. My favorite is the black screen because no one would suspect a thing!

And always make sure to have your sound and flash off!!
