I'm slowly getting to grips with the camera on my iPhone, and I've been playing around with apps to see how far I can push its capabilities. I'm a big fan of VSCO Cam and Cortex Cam, bit over the last few days I've been playing with ProCam2.
Decent macro shots is a lot to ask of a phone, but that's where it started. Focus is always a problem, and this closeup of Bellis perennis ...wasn't quite there.
A little practice and a little patience and things got better.
Static flowers such as this Ceanothus are easy enough, but the bees buzzing this shrub didn't stay around long enough to allow me to get on in focus.
I like the effect that I got on this dandelion seedhead.
So I switched to the kaleidoscope filter.
The simplest of the ProCam2 kaleidoscope filters has a lot of potential.
Whereas I'm less impressed with the fisheye filter.
So here's another architectural kaleidoscope shot - can you tell where it is?
