How to do amazing pics with your iPhone Macro Lens

How to do amazing pics with your iPhone Macro Lens

  How to take amazing pics with your iPhone Macro Lens by @Myriam40a . My passion for macro photography started just two months ago when I discovered Severine’s (aka @sevrinou, co-founder of the tag #irox_macro) stream. I literally fell in love with her gallery. I found her pictures’ beautiful compositions and breathtaking colours quite moving and they really motivated me to do some  macro photography myself. And after two months, my interest in “macro works” is still alive! It’s amazing how this small accessory, this simple lens can produce such amazing effects! So let’s talk about this micro “Macro Lens”! .. The Macro Lens is part of a kit of lenses I ordered for around fifty dollars from Photo Jojo one of the best e-commerce site. The kit contains a Wide Angle, a Telephoto, a Fisheye and a Macro Lens. It also contains several magnetic rings, providing a sturdy, shake-free hold between the lens and the phone camera. . To shoot pics with the Macro Lens, you’ll have to get as close as you can, about half an inch or one centimeter from the subject. Only a small part of this subject will be sharp and everything else will remain “blurry”. It is very important to find very small subjects. The smaller the subject is, the sharper the shot will be. . .–   . . . A steady hand is essential When you use the macro lens, the slightest movement is magnified and makes pictures blurred. That’s why it difficult to photograph moving insects or any other subject that lives outside. The wind makes the task much more complicated. Macro photography requires infinite dedication,...

Blinxbox a new Instagram Api based app for Android . BlinxBox “Instagram Api based” app for Android (download here) is focused on Instagram “Droid” users that allows users to receive notifications when one of many of their “fav” users upload a new pic to the app. Today,  enabling Instagramers to keep up to date and receive image feeds directly without opening Instagram itself. The company has been developing a new media consumption tool called “Box”. The micro TV-like window streams images, videos and social feeds directly to the user’s mobile desktop without having to launch an app or access a browser. Using patented (pending) technology, each Box streams feeds from preferred sources: Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and others. The Box aggregates media, alerting users of a new feed by rich push notification, even if their device’s screen is off. The company is working fervently on its upcoming Boxes, starting with its London Olympics Box which will hit the Android market at the beginning of July, and a Facebook Box scheduled later this year. “People consume digital media from numerous destinations on a daily basis.” notes CEO, Nir Segev, “With the marketplace being flooded with new apps every day, users currently have to jump from one app to another in a frenetic search for their favorite content”. BlinxBox aims to bring it all right to them , as it arrives, with minimal effort. You can download BlinxBox “Instagram” app for Android here .. @philgonzalez...
Instagram 2.5.0 update version: Is it really the end of the Popular Page?

Instagram 2.5.0 update version: Is it really the end of the Popular Page?

Instagram 2.5.0 update: is it really the end of the Popular Page? . Instagram 2.5.0. So what’s new? . Last night, like every night, I was having “my last look” at Instagram  before going to bed (as probably every single Iger does). I suddenly discovered on our Instagramers London @IgersLondon feed a pic mentioning the New Instagram 2.5.0 version available at Appstore. It caught my attention as the pic said “Goodbye” to “Popular” , welcome to “Discover” (see pic right) . What?!? Instagram without its Pop Page? . At first I wondered if this could be true! Since its beginnings Instagram’s bio-rythm was based around the Pop Page! It gave us specific “social recognition” , or our own “trending topics” also known as “Populars” or the “Pop Page”. This page was the first point of reference for most Igers! I quickly downloaded the new version of our fav photo-sharing app to find out what it was all about. First, this new version 2.5.0 of Instagram seems to be only for i.OS at the moment. (download here) and the official blog explains some of the new features. Revamped profile tab (Phil: the app has squarer angles and a new tab bar font) Search for users and tags in the Explore tab (Phil: this means you now search for other users and tags on the new “Explore” page not on your profile page) Improvements to commenting (Phil: Amongst others, a “wider dialogue space” very similar to Facebook’s) User search autocompletes based on people you follow  (Phil: Very useful and similar to one of Twitter‘s best features) Visual improvements (Phil: Mostly in Profile, Tab Bar, look and feel of...
