Ready to put a magnifying glass to the world? Designed for extreme close-ups, the macro lens produces visually stunning photos at roughly 10x magnification. Anybody can take a great macro shot. The key is keeping your iPhone steady in a well-lit environment. With the olloclip, you can see what the human eye is missing out on. Here is a step-by-step guide:
How to take this shot:
I used the olloclip macro lens and a few objects I had lying around.
1. Set iPhone up on tripod. There are a range of tripods available for the iPhone. I used the Joby GripTight Micro Stand with a glif mount.
2. If needed, prop up the object so you have the desired field of view. Use whatever is around, and be creative. I grabbed my iPhone case and lip color from my bag. To steady the dollar bill, I tapped it to the back of a film canister.
3. Place the dollar a short distance (~13mm) away from the lens. You can play around with the distance to get a sharper picture. One thing you can do is lock the focus. Touch the iPhone screen where you’d like to focus. Once the square appears, hold your finger down for a few seconds and release. It should say AE/AF lock.
4. Make sure you have enough light.
5. Press the camera icon. Do yourself a favor and take plenty of shots! It’s easier to find the best ones on a larger computer screen.
