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,...

How to find love in Instagram?

How to find love in Instagram? . According to a survey conducted by Yahoo last June, 5,5% users had said or were told for “I love you” the first time and 4% had broken up their relationship through social networks. The other startling fact is that 8% had proposed or had received a marriage proposal through some kind of social network. .

As multiple accounts become more and more common (personal accounts, company accounts,  local Igers Groups, etc.)  What would be the best solution be?   .
