Join Joseph "PhotoJoseph" Linaschke for an in-depth discussion in this video Working with macro lens attachments on an iPhone, part of Photography 101: Shooting Macros and Close-Ups.
…If you love macro photography and you love your iPhone, there's…another little product you might want to look at called the Olloclip.…The Olloclip allows you to focus a lot…closer than you normally can with your iPhone camera.…So, check this out.…Basically what you get is a reversible macro lens that is a 10x and 15x macro.…They allow you to focus at 18 millimeter and at 12 millimeter distance.…Now, that's two of the four-in-one combination for this packet.…There's also two different wide angled lenses that you can add on to these.…
You get a wide angle and then a fish-eyed field of view.…But for this, we just want to take a look at the macro.…So, before I shoot through this, let me just take a…photo with the iPhone, as it is, without any extra add-ons.…And, let's see how close we can get, and then I'll go ahead and…put this thing on there and we'll see how much closer we can go.…So, let's start just with the iPhone on it's own.…And get in nice and close to these flowers here.…And looks like that's about it.…
