Macro Photo Hack

I saw this cool pin on Pinterest for taking macro photos with your iPhone and decided to try it.

Derek was kind enough to harvest the lens out of this dollar store laser pointer for me.

I followed the step by step instructions provided here.
Then I gathered a few fun things to practice on.IMG_7086
Check out my fortune! Amazing advice. The fact that it came from a cookie makes it even cooler!

The hardest part about this entire thing is keeping a steady hand. I tucked my arm in and braced my elbow on something to counter the hand shake I seem to have but never notice until I am trying to hold perfectly still.

Practice makes better.
