I'm wanting up photograph a friend while he works pretty soon.


hey christopher

is there a way to borrow their glasses or a spare pair
and just hold it infront of your camera ?

it might be easier ( and less expensive ! ) then buying
photo grade glass that might be a pspecial order ...

have fuN !
