Use a Coffee Cup Sleeve as a Temporary Lens Hood

By Jason Fitzpatrick on April 6th, 2012

Whether you left your lens hood at home or you don’t even have one, this quick and dirty hack turns a coffee cup sleeve into a temporary lens hood.

Slide the sleeve around the lens, take the photos, toss it in the recycling bin. Except for making a quick cut with pocket knife to adjust the size (if need be) there’s not much else you need to do for this simple sleeve-to-hood hack.
