We just got back from an amazing vacation to Nevis and I wanted to share some glimpses from our trip. My passion for photography has grown through the years, and it amazes me that some of my favorite photos are usually taken with my iPhone. Life, well our life, just happens so quickly and it’s nice to know that I have a little device in my back pocket that I can capture these memories we are making. While I adore my big camera, it’s sometimes easier just to shoot with my iPhone, especially when toting three children, a stroller, and our many things around town. This past week in paradise I happen to take along my newest add-on to my iPhone, the Olloclip 4-in-1 lens to boost some of my photography when not using my DSLR.
The olloclip 4-in-1 is a quick-connect lens solution for the iPhone that includes Fisheye, Wide-Angle and 2 Macro lenses in one small, convenient package that easily fits in your pocket; and the palm of your hand. It connects to the iPhone within seconds so you’ll be sure to capture the image you want. If you don’t see the picture you’re looking for, just flip it over to switch lenses.
The lens I happened to use the most were the Fisheye lens which captures approximately a 180° field-of-view and produces some striking and cool imagery. The Wide-Angle lens is great for when you need that extra field of view, approximately double that of the normal iPhone.
The 10x Macro Lens has an approx. 18mm focus distance, while the 15x Macro Lens has an approx. 12mm focus distance. To access either Macro lens, simply unscrew and remove the Wide-Angle or Fisheye. The lens are perfect when trying to capture detailed objects.
It’s been really incredible capturing different angles I normally wouldn’t shoot with the olloclip. It’s so easy to use and moves seamlessly on and off your phone. I am excited to test in out with the incredible NYC landscapes.
I can’t wait to tell you about the rest of my trip next week, but for now, we are all still trying to get back to reality.
