Today's photo tip is short and sweet! Two weeks ago, I posted a Photo Tip Tuesday about using a macro attachment lens. (You can find that post with all the details here.) I focused on using the macro portion of the attachment, but those lenses do more than just macro! Those extra attachments give you a wide-angle and a fisheye look to your mobile pictures!
Here's a quick look below at the differences.
On the left is a regular picture with no attachments. The middle picture was taken using the wide-angle, and the one on the right is the fisheye. As you can see, the fisheye has some vignetting (those dark corners), but those can always be cropped out after. (Which is what I usually do!) There is also some distortion on the fisheye too, unless you have the horizon in the exact middle.
You can see that using an attachment lens can add a little something extra to your camera phone. Sure, it's not for every day and every picture use, but it's sure fun to pull it out every once in awhile!
