Macro photos: up close, personal. A macro lens exposes an entire world that the eye cannot see. And takes photos the iPhone can’t. Or can it?
The problem with taking macro photos is that it requires a special lens which means carrying a special camera which means carrying a special case for that camera and the lens. But who wants to carry around all that equipment?
Luck has been defined as when preparedness meets opportunity. The camera I carry when opportunity strikes is my iPhone. I always have it with me. Fortunately, Photojojo sells a macro lens for the iPhone. It fits in my pocket, uses a magnet to attach, and only costs $20. Nice. Now I have the right tool to fuel my creativity.
The Photojojo website is fun to use, has cool stuff for photographers, and delivery is fast! Some photographers might turn up their noses at a macro lens for the iPhone, but take a quick look at the photos below. Compare the photos I took below and you just may want to get up close and personal with a macro lens.
As close to the bug as the iPhone can get, blurry and boring
Wow! Look at that dude!
Gorgeous detail on that flower!
