If you wish to record or photograph someone or something without being noticed, it is necessary to hide your camera lens. The lens can easily reflects sunlight, and, therefore, be exposed to the subject being photographed. Certain video cameras can be concealed inside objects and triggered to record whenever motion is detected. Still cameras and non-motion-sensor video cameras must be concealed while the cameraman operates it by hand. The lens, particularly a large zoom lens, can be hidden with camouflage and through the careful positioning of the cameraman.
- Scope out the area where you wish to photograph or record. Look for a possible hiding spot where you can hold the camera without being noticed. If your camera has a motion sensor, look for possible areas where it can be placed. Also, look at surrounding objects that can help conceal the camera.
