About two weeks ago, I picked up set of cheap clip-on lenses for my phone. They’re nothing fancy, but they’re a fun little toy—especially the macro lens. (I’m still getting the hang of the fisheye and wide-angle attachments.)
I’m sure the novelty will wear off soon—I hope the novelty will wear off soon, because if it doesn’t I’m going to be tempted to get a real macro lens, and I can’t justify that expense—but in the meantime, that’s why there are so many close-up photos this week.
This week also features my first pure skill-building exercise of this project. I don’t know how often I’m going to work on those sorts of things—or if I’ll include them all when I do—but it’s definitely going to be a semi-regular occurrence over the next year. (Including white-on-white specifically. That’s surprisingly difficult from a technical standpoint, and I’m not where I want to be with that yet.)
