TOP TOOLS FOR CAPTURING STUNNING IMAGES
BY RHEANNE TAYLOR
Olloclip Mobile Photography Lenses ($54.99–$119.99)
If you want to take your iPhone photography up a few notch-es, we definitely recommend checking out Olloclip’s line of
attachable lenses. Whether you’re interested in macro shots of
insects and flowers or wide-angle shots of a beautiful city or
forest, Olloclip has you covered. Personally, I love the company’s
macro lens options, which can deliver up to 21x magnification.
It’s a lot of fun capturing the details of a butterfly’s wing or the
subtle colors of an otherwise uninteresting plant.
Kodak Photo Printer Mini ($96.94-$129.99)
Sharing photos on Facebook and Instagram is nice, but why not also
print a photo to keep on your desk at work or to stick inside a card to
send to your grandparents? This portable printer by Kodak is much easier
to use than your standard printer, and you can take it with you anywhere.
Keep in mind you are sacrificing quality for convenience, but (
considering its size) this printer whips out some pretty decent prints. It’s a great
choice for anyone who wants to quickly print their iPhone shots.
Joby Grip Tight One Magnetic Impulse Tripod ($59.95)
The idea of carrying around anything remotely like a tripod in
order to snap photos with your iPhone might sound excessive.
But trust us, this phone mount is worth it. When trying to capture
a group shot of the company in our ugly Christmas sweaters, this
little guy was a lifesaver. Thanks to its three bendable legs and magnetic feet, it can hold your iPhone steady almost anywhere. Plus,
it’s so small it’s barely noticeable in a bag or backpack.
Mpow Bluetooth Selfie Stick ($9.99)
Sure, selfie sticks are an embarrassment, but come on—we’ve all secretly
wished, at least once, that we had one. I mean, how many times have you
struggled to get all your friends crammed into a group selfie while also showing
off the scenery around you? Unlike many selfie sticks, this particular one from
Mpow includes a shutter release button on the handle instead of one of those
easy-to-lose Bluetooth remotes. It’s also easily adjustable, extending out to 31
inches and featuring a 270-degree adjustable head.
Apple Lightning to SD Card Camera Reader
Do you have a fancy DSLR camera but need
a way to easily transfer your shots to the Photos
app on your iOS devices? Well, there’s a solution
for you too! Apple offers a Lighting to SD card
reader that allows you to transfer images from
your DSLR camera to your iPhone in a snap—
and without having to use your computer. That
means no more waiting around till the end of
your vacation to start sharing your favorite moments with friends and family.
