Such a tiny bloom
About the size of a dime.
Your beauty awes me…
Have you spied any tiny treasures in nature recently, dear readers? Do tell!
Tiny, dried, brittle.
I have not overlooked you.
I see your beauty…
I recently took this photo with my iPhone using a macro lens. A macro lens on an iPhone, you say?! Yes! Hubby gave me 3 tiny lenses – that attach to my iPhone – for Christmas. What a treat! I was lucky enough to receive a fish eye lens, a zoom lens, and a combo macro/wide angle lens and have been having fun experimenting with them. I hope to post more photos taken with these lenses in the coming months. They’re available at photojojo.com if you’re interested.

If you have an iPhone and haven’t tried Instagram, trust me – you’re missing out! Instagram is an iPhone app that allows you customize the look and feel of your iPhone photos quickly and easily. The eleven photo filters range in appearance and mood, and they quickly transform a photo into something special. You can then share the image with others – swiftly and easily – via email, Twitter, Facebook, and Flickr. Instagram is a free app, so you’ve got nothing to lose, and I’m certain you’ll be as charmed by Instagram as I am.
LOVE That Look…
Here are some of the photos that I took with my iPhone and then “Instagramed”. I’m listing the name of the filter I used on each of the photos below the image, so you know how Instagram helped me achieve the different looks. (The photo up top was treated with the Lomo-fi filter)
Sharing vs. Privacy
Though a big part of Instagram’s charm is the look of the photos, another key component is the sharing of your photos. You can easily share your photos with family, friends, and photo friends by selecting the desired audience once your photo is ready. Through this sharing function, Instagram provides a unique way to share and stay in touch, and a way for you to follow the photos of those you admire.
Please note: Instagram is a public sharing platform, and your profile defaults to a public setting. This means others can see your photos and subscribe to follow your photos, so don’t Instagram anything you wouldn’t want the world to see! However, there is a private option, which allows you to approve all “follow” requests before they’re implemented. To set your profile’s privacy settings, just go to “profile” and “privacy” – which is at the very bottom.
iPhones ONLY? Really?
Yes, it’s sad but true. Instagram is only available for iPhones – for now. The folks at Instagram want to make sure they’re solid with one platform before moving on to others. Waiting can be a pain, but hopefully the prospect of additional platforms gives non-iPhone users something to look forward to.
In the meantime, non-iPhoners can live vicariously through me! I’ll be posting more Instagram photos on Twitter (@melodymnunez) and on my website’s Facebook fan page, so please follow my Instagram photo adventures in one or both of these places.
If you’re an iPhone user, have you tried Instagram? What do you think? I’d love to get your feedback…
