Have you ever been frustrated when trying to get a close-up photo of something only to have it be blurry? Enter the Olloclip. (I got mine at Photojojo, a very cool place to shop.) This cool little gadget will enable not only macro photos, but wide angle and fisheye. Here are a few of my first macros. The hardest part is trying to hold the camera still while shooting. So here's the best tip in the world! Press and hold the 'shutter' button until just the right moment, then lift your finger to take the shot. This also works wonders when shooting kids. I do this a lot now. Did you also know that you can use the volume up on your headphones like a shutter lease? This would come in quite handy if you happen to have your phone attached to a tripod or sitting on something.
This little stinker of a weed is my arch enemy. But the tiny flower is beautiful. (next 2 photos)
