iPhone macro trick / by katie ring

Yes, I took this photo with my iPhone. My favorite thing about my phone is that it’s a small but powerful camera that’s always in my pocket. Want to know how I did this?

If you point your phone out the window it will automatically focus beyond the glass. Move the phone closer or further but it will expose for and focus on the background. So, if you want a macro shot like this you may need to trick it. How? Put one finger next to the thing you want focus on. Tap the iPhone screen with your other finger and you’ll see it focus where you’re pressing. Once you have the focus you want, move your finger, take the photo and BOOM. Macro shot. Happy snapping! I hope this helps you with your iphoneography!  No need for those specialty add-on macro lenses!
