Phoneography Monday: Macro

I think I use my “little go everywhere phone’s” camera feature more than the phone feature itself, so the “Phoneography” challenges hosted by Lens and Pens by Sally seems like a great fit for me. Rather than wildly snapping off photos of my little one like usual, today I deliberately tried my hand at macro shooting…I’m a complete novice though and totally made “macro-shooting” up. Is it a real term?

Back to the images themselves though, I may not have the patience for this sort of thing, but here’s what I came up with. What do you think? All images are taken with my iPhone 4 and were edited a bit with snapseed.

    Welcome to the challenge, very happy to have you join us. Enjoyed your images. The begonia is my favorite. It’s robust and calls for my attention. Happy Phoneography Monday.


    • Thanks so much for the viewing and comments! It was fun. I love snapping photos but rarely try to deliberately do something on purpose and your challenge inspired me to be more thoughtful. I’ll definitely do more. Cheers!
