Macro Photography using a mobile phone is one of the techniques to photograph at a fairly difficult level. This Blog is one of the Mobile Photography blogs that share tutorials on how to take good and professional pictures with a phone. As we know this technique usually takes photos with a very close distance between (1-5 cm), to get the details of an object that is very small (less than 2 cm).
Getting the photos is usually done with DSLR cameras and macro lenses that cost quite expensive. However, as time grew many lenses have been modified. In this tutorial, I will teach 3 ways of macro photos.
Include: Without the use of lenses, using modified lenses, and using water droplets. Before that, there are some Macro photo Tips on a mobile phone.
