Floral Friday – Flowers with the phone


Floral Friday – Flowers with the phone

This week has been exciting as I got some lenses for my phone to try out. They are from a company called Struman Optics and they are the best ones I’ve seen so far. I really like the macro lens, and you can get so close.

I have two photos taken with them. The first one is from my garden. It is a marigold that hasn’t opened yet.


The second one I took at Alowyn Gardens today.


It blows my mind how close you can get to the flowers.

Speaking of Alowyn Gardens, I’m going to be teaching a Macro Photography class there on the 29th of October. I’m really excited at the prospect of it. Should be a good day.

  1. I’m loving the photos you managed to take they angles and everything are great!

  2. Brilliant shots Leanne .. is your phone an iPhone?

  3. These are stunning images, Leanne. I can’t believe you captured these with your phone! How do the lenses work?

  4. This is interesting. I’m going to look again at these lenses. I did try one once on my iPhone 6splus, but it wasn’t good at all ( I wasn’t expecting much as it cost about the same as a good cup of coffee! )

  5. Amazing how close you can get to the flowers and still produce first-class images! But to have special macro lenses for a phone is mind-blowing. Thanks for the info, Leanne!
