Hi all. I have been really getting into Macro Photography. I only have a phone and a very cheap Macro lens. I have been recommending the clip-on lens quite a bit to members. A few of you purchased the lens but could not get the best out of it. So I have decided to add a few tips. Bobby’s Top Tips Macro style. 1. Always place the objects you’re photographing on a steady flat surface. Do not hold the object, as there is too much movement for a macro lens, which can cause the object to be blurry. 2. Sit still at a table to take your photos, and if possible, rest your arms on the table to steady the camera by holding your phone with both hands. 3. Don’t use any zoom function on the camera phone, merely move the Macro lens towards and away from the object that is been photographed until it comes into crisp focus. The phone zoom is not really designed to be used with a clip-on Macro lens, and will add noise to the image very easily . 4. Keep as still as you can when pressing the shutter button. Take multiple pictures, sometimes I take 10 photos just to get one good image 5. Lighting: make sure you have an even source of strong light . Outside in good conditions, or purchase a daylight bulb, and use it in an Anglepoise lamp. Without good lighting, your photo will be blurred. And that's about it. With a good camera phone a cheap lens you can get fantastic closeups. I hope this helps. All the best, Bobby
