Phoneography Monday: Macro

Unlike the DSRL cameras, I find it very difficult to get a really great macro shot using an iPod, iPad, or iPhone, and have my eyes
open for an app that will help take that shot. Let me know if you have found one.
For this entry, I used my iPad, which does not have HD like my iPod.
See tips about Macro Photography that I put together with updates as I experience them. Tip #3.



Gracie (, Polly ( & Sally ( began the Phoneography Monday Challenge in February, using Phoneography as the theme because it reflected the mobile photography movement that had spread globally.

Here is the rotating schedule for Phoneography Monday and as Sally would say “Happy Shooting!”

1st Monday: Nature
2nd Monday: Macro
3rd Monday: Black-and-White
4th and 5th Mondays: Challenger’s Choice Pick One:

Food Photography
Night Photography
Still Life
Street Photography

See what the macro challenge is developing:

    1. I love the combination for these colors! My iPod doesn’t take the nice dsrl macro. It was a lot of work just to get this close. Thank you for your coming by and checking out my photos and sharing!

    1. Thanks for catching that. I use my iPod for all my posts. I miss the keys all the time, but then the spell check seems to rule the world.

    1. Your Blue Wolf Series looks pretty good. I guess using an iPhone over an iPod has its perks. I find that I holding the iPod closer than 2″, I lose the ability to focus. Thank you for coming by and your comment.

  1. I usually just use the native camera app on my iPhone and try to get as close as I can to my subject. It isn’t the best, but it works.

    1. HI Lisa, I just framed it in Snapseed. It’s as close to macro as I can get. It looks more like closeup than macro. What do you think? I have seen pretty amazing macro and don’t know how it’s done with iPad or iPod. Have fun with macro!

  2. I agree that macro is a difficult task with the iPhone or other Smartphones. Lighting is essential as well as issues with camera shake. I have not found an app that really works, but will let you know if I do. Camera + is the closest. It does have an exposure and focus feature. Happy Phoneography Challenge.
