You don't need an arts degree to take professional photos. You just need to have some creativity. And we're not talking about the photos your dad takes from an awkwardly high angle where one of your eyes is closed and you're in the middle of saying something. We're talking about the kind of photos you see in magazines.

TikTok creator @wonguy posted a video sharing a quick and easy hack that can help you take your photos to the next level. If you're looking to build up your portfolio or vamp up your Instagram feed, this is the video for you.

That's way cool! You can create an incredible image just by staging a few items. The first thing you'll want to do is find your subject and prop up your camera with the angle you want. Then pour out some water in front of the camera to create a reflective surface for your subject. Then grab a few more items to complete the staging and you're ready to click away. The results will be stunning!

Viewers voiced their amazement in the comments section. "Pretty creative," @observant2314 said. "This is amazing," @bethewarrior_bethestorm said. "Great! Only need to figure out how to get the 1749324 other tourists trying the same thing out of my picture..." @thomas8653 said. Such a relatable problem.

If you're a photographer, aspiring or veteran, try out this hack!
