This thread is the best

Thank you so much and if you got a couple of photos please feel free to share here and the lens you are using. I would be interested in seeing a microscope been used via a phone. I have to look into this for an iPhone. 

 

Cheers Bobby

Got a little time to play with the macro lens tonight.  First picture is the 3 ammonites I received from @Max-fossils, next is individually with the clip on macro.

Thanks.  Lighting seems to be the trickiest part.  I had to play with a led flashlight at different angles to try to balance between not enough and too much light... still fine turning that part.

Nice pictures and ammonites, good detail down to the septal margin. I got a an anglepoise lamp with a daylight blub in it. Works well because you can angle the light in the right direction . I think you hit the nail on the head, definitely good light Is the key to a good photo. Thank you it is much appreciated you adding to this thread. Enjoy your photography all the best Bobby

Probably one of the most beautiful shark tooth in my collection and deserves a close look. Physogaleus contortus , bakers field. California

I am adding my Keichousaurus skull photo here . I was wondering if it worthwhile me talking detailed photos of the whole fossil to be used in “is it real” as comparison? I think I may do this in the week.

It is quite pretty picture too.

I would love to see more close-ups from various angles, I think that would be super informative!

Ok cool I was not sure and probably take a good amount of time to achieve all good photos . I am up for the challenge, so why not.  Thank you.

I have found a few other things that help me out.  :) 

I was gifted a set of lenses by my kids this past Christmas, and a small tripod as well.

Both things came with bluetooth remote shutters. They work really well, and keep your hands off of the phone, so you can get good steady shots of your fossils, when used in conjunction with a tripod. 

You can buy the Bluetooth remote shutters for as little as 2 to 3 dollars. 

Worth the investment, if you can get one. 

Hope this helps someone out.  :)
