Thanks! I plan to get an iPhone Macro clip soon and this will be very helpful. What brand do you use?

Thanks for posting these tips. :) I have always used the zoom function with my macro lens. I’m now thinking that could be where my problem lies with getting clear photos. :wacko:

I have added a good sample of images just to show that you that you can get some stunning photos from this combination. Most people have camera phones, so why not for under $20 get a Macro lens.

No name brand, per se.

Mrs R. gave it me for an Easter gift.

Money well spent she said.

One last tip:  PRACTICE!

It took me a little bit of time to get it right. ;)

Thanks Tim and Dave.

It has opened a new and different interesting way for me to enjoy my fossil collecting.  I also like the fact I am achieving good images without a good quality camera.

I really like the fact I pushing the capabilities of my mobile phone.  

Good fun in the garden too.

The spider doesn’t quite look real to me with all of the usually unseen details in such sharp, magnified view. I can see why this would be one if your favorite photos. :)

Hi all one last trick up my sleeve. The great @Nimravis taught me this cool trick but you need to have an iPhone. Go into your pictures choose the photograph that you want to enlarge a bit of.

Press the edit icon and  the icon that I have hi-lighted in yellow.

Then choose the markup

Then choose the magnifier

Place the magnifier over your image

The blue button on the circle makes the circle bigger or smaller.The green button zooms in or out just move the buttons like turning a dial .

A great little tool . Have fun

It is amazing the hidden details that are revealed by a Macro lens. It has opened up a new way for me to enjoy and understand fossil.  Photographed this yesterday  

Dactylioceras Cf Athleticum

with a worm tube
