Phone cameras are such a boost, to be able to snap a shot wherever you are is a real bonus and the quality of the lenses within the cameras are so great the results are fantastic.
So when the I found add on macro lenses that can be used with phone cameras I just had to have one.
The Apple store sell the official macro and close up lenses called an olloclip;
“The olloclip 4-IN-1 Photo Lens is designed for use with iPad Air, iPad mini with Retina display and iPad mini. It clips on and off your device quickly and easily and offers four lenses – fisheye, wide-angle and two macro lenses (10x and 15x) – in one simple device. So you can take stunning, creative photos anytime and anywhere”
But as it cost around £60 and I wasn’t sure if it is exactly what I want I thought I’d try a cheap version from EBay for £4.96
“180° Fish Eye Lens Wide Angle Macro Lens Clip Camera Kit for iPhone iPad 5 Color”
This lens has proved to be very high quality considering the price, producing some lovely results.
Now it just takes a steady hand and a bit of imagination to take some lovely macro shots. Some of the nicest shots are ones where you can have a play around with the depth of field.
