An Easy Way To Take Better Iphone Photo’s!

Iphone photography is my go-to for taking snaps, as most of the time I never remember to take my real camera with me or the lithium batteries have died!

Avid photographers will shake their finger at me, no doubt.

I have managed to capture some great shots over the years but sometimes I would love to be a bit more creative.

Well thanks to Ebay and a little accidental searching, I found this simple lens attachment for iphones. It set me back a tiny $6.95. So what the heck, thought I would buy one and give it a go.

It arrived in the post today, and I had a quick play with it in the backyard. I am in love!

The three in one lens set, slides straight on to your phone and you are ready for action. (The micro lens is hidden under the wide-angle lens and you just unscrew it for close-ups.)

Add the wide angle lens and you get much more of the landscape included in the photo.

Add the fishbowl lens and you get that fun round effect on your photo.

This one is my favourite, the microscopic lens takes fabulous close-ups. I am going to have a lot of fun with this one!

This little attachment comes with it’s own handy little pouch and will now be a permanent addition in my handbag. I just love modern technology and how easy things can be, and all for such a bargain price. Yay! πŸ™‚

I think I will go and take some more photo’s!

    Wow! I never knew such a thing existed. It does a great job. I have an SLR and I’m trying to leave it out so I pick it up first, but sometimes iPhones are just so darn convenient.

    Oooh, I love that! And for 6.95 you can’t lose, really, can you! I was given a DSLR for my birthday a couple of months ago but am yet to really understand what I’m doing with it. This is a great way to sharpen up the iPhone images. Thanks! Dropping by from #FYBF

    I’m still getting used to taking good photos with my smart phone. This lens looks like a good addition.

    Great idea. I don’t ever use a camera any more but it would be nice to have some more options for phone photos. Have fun rediscovering photography again πŸ™‚
