Project366: #61-70

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.)

(Project366 runs from 23 January 2019 through 23 January 2020. I’ll posting to Instagram daily, and rounding up the photos here every ten days.)

  1. Hi Reghan, I love how these ones turned out! The lens added a good dimension to your pictures. You’re inspiring me to get back into taking photos for fun. And yes, also get a macro lens.

    Keep up the good work. My favorite for this week was the coffee grounds, no bias 😉



    1. Thanks, Ernesto! You should definitely start taking photos for fun again; it’s incredibly rewarding, both emotionally and creatively. (Meditation has never worked for me, but photography is a mindfulness practice on its own.)

      And the coffee is one of my favourites, too…. 😄
