I Capture The Worlds Beneath Our Feet Using My Iphone And A Small Macro Lens

I’ve become passionate, even obsessive, about capturing the world most people rarely see – the world beneath our feet using just my iPhone and a small macro lens called an olloclip.

I started out just using my iPhone as a magnifying glass, because I was really interested to see the detail in things. My obsession grew until I was finding things everywhere, hunting them down in my backyard, at the beach, on a busy road…

I’ve found so many interesting things I’ve never seen before in my life. Keep in mind the participants in my photos are rarely larger than 1cm and I am only 1-2cm away from them! So it’s very ‘up close and personal’.

Here are just a few!

So Karin, this is fantastic! You must be feeling so proud - or you jolly well should be! My favourite one of this bunch (because there is only 1 snail), is the little yellow ladybird! I have never seen a ladybird's face close up before! Once again, congratulations! XXX

Hi Karin! So - this is incredible news! Well done - you must feel so proud - you should anyway! My favourite of this bunch (cos there is only 1 snail), is the little yellow ladybird with the cutest expression! I have never seen a ladybird's face properly before! Plus - they bring good luck! Thanks so much for sharing and again, congratulations!

Hi Deanie! It's so good to hear from you and so glad you like the article and photos! That little yellow ladybird has the sweetest expression I've ever seen on a ladybird, it even looks as though she has hair on top of her head, she is definitely one of my special favourites. :) Thank you so very very much!! :)
