Macro photography

Recently I got a macro lens for my phone, below is a picture of it. They are very inexpensive and have also the power to take some quite fascinating pictures. It sticks to the back of your phone with 8 suction caps (apparently you only need a couple to be on the phone for it to stick), on top of the camera. You have to make sure you get the macro lens perfectly straight, otherwise you will get red or yellow smudges on the edges of your photos – at least for my lens.

Here’s one taster image, I’ll post some more very soon! This is a picture of a pattern in some cloth I found. A lot of the macro pictures generally follow the same discovery pattern: you’re doing something completely different, you see something that looks very interesting or detailed, “That’ll be a good macro picture!”

Apologies that some of the pictures are a bit fuzzy or sometimes out of focus, it’s not a proper lens…

Remember, I’ll post some more soon!
