The heart of winter
FRISCO — I had a chance to try out the Olloclip lens for my iPhone camera the past few weeks. I was especially interested in the macro attachment, and after playing around with it for a while, finally figured out how to optimize the shots. If you haven’t heard of it, the Olloclip is a three-way (wide-angle, macro and fisheye) lens that simply slips over the corner of your iPhone. It retails for about $70 and adds some versatility to your repertoire. I still haven’t figured out all the tricks, but I can say that, for a pocket-sized attachment, it offers some fun features. It’s never going to be quite as sharp as a true all-out DSLR macro lens, but as the photo below shows, it does the job for casual snapshots. Now, to explore a telephone lens for the iPhone. All the photos in this set are by iPhone.
