Using some easy to get objects and skills you can begin your journey to becoming a master spy.
Step 1: Gather equipment
>Camera phone, small film camera (like the one shown), or a little digital camera
>Monocular or some small binoculars, the more powerful they are the more detail, but less powerful gives you a bigger field of view.
>Notepad and pen- to write down addresses, license numbers, and any other observations
>A small mirror- can be easily obtained from a makeup thing that girls use, just pry it off.
>A watch- to log the times of events
>A Swiss Army Knife- just useful to have
>Spy shades- mine look goofy, but I've seen some better ones, there's also another Instructables on how to make a pair.
>If you are on a dangerous mission you may want to bring along a larger knife, but one that will still fit in your pocket, if you are entering gang territory or some very dangerous place then you should bring a concealable handgun.
