1. The bag
The first thing you need to do is get a sandwich bag. If you don't have any lying around, go to the nearest grocery or drugstore. There are many types to choose from at different prices.
2. The hole
Next, you need to tear a hole in the opposite end of the opening. Make sure its wide enough to fit the lens on your camera. Refrain from using scissors since you want the edges to look unkempt.
3. The lens
Carefully slide the bag onto your lens. Keep part of the bag hanging over the opening of the lens, since you want some of it to show through your viewfinder. Keep the middle part clear for your shots.
4. The shots
Now its time to take some pictures. You'll notice that the edges will look a little fuzzy. You can take indoor and outdoor shots using this method. Now you can take inexpensive vintage looking photos.

5. Color the bag
Something else you can add to the shots are colors. Take a colored pen and color all over the lunch bag. Place the bag on the lens and shoot away. Experiment with different colored bags until you get the look you want.
