I hope everyone had a great holiday season, and the year is starting off well for you.
My year ended with laryngitis, and a cold. My voice is still a bit cracky, and now He-Man has the cold so, we’re off to a slower start, but I can’t complain too much it’s just a cold!
It’s also been raining here for nearly a week which has kept me indoors; except for a couple of short walks in between rain showers. That has given me time to take down Christmas decorations, and play a little bit with my newest camera gear. For Christmas He-Man gave me The Core Set of lenses by Olloclip. Olloclip makes lenses for cell phones. The Core Set comes with 3 lenses a Super Wide, Fisheye, and Macro 15x.
Of the three the one I’ve been experimenting with is the macro 15x lens. You unscrew the fisheye lens and underneath it is the macro lens. Addendum: I should add that I use a 3rd party camera app called ProCamera. It’s my favorite camera app.
Here are some images I’ve made with the macro lens,
Paint Palette Blues
Paper towel blues
You need to get right on top of the subject then focus with this macro lens. The depth of field is teeny tiny. Holding steady is tricky so,I need to get a tripod set up for it, and I’d like to get the Olloclip 7x macro lens for some working room and get more in focus. GAS rearing its ugly head again.
I’m looking forward to getting to use this kit more as I go about my day in the house and out…that’s assuming I remember to grab my phone on the way out the door!
GAS= Gear Acquisition Syndrome.
