“Look at everything as though you were seeing it for either the first or last time. Then your life on earth will be filled with glory”. -Betty Smith

Before heading to France, I purchased an olloclip three-in-one lens for my beloved iPhone. As an avid Instagram follower, I began to notice all the incredibly cool travel shots with funky angles. I asked a fellow Instagrammer and blogger, 2Summers, who told me about the olloclip. The olloclip is a quick-connect lens solution for the iPhone 5, iPhone 4, iPhone 4S and iPod touch that includes fisheye, wide-angle and macro lenses packaged all in the size of large gum ball. For the size of the lens and the price ($69.99), it is an amazing little lens that is so easy to carry and convenient, that it beat dragging around bigger lens for my “real” camera as I walked for hours upon hours in Paris.

Here are some of the shots I got with my olloclip. I didn’t take as many as planned since I used my main camera way more than my iPhone, however, these shots should give you a feel for what this little guy can do. Pretty amazing, huh?

The first three photos are all taken out of my hotel room window in the Marais, looking down at the street below and the last two are in lovely Montmartre. (Note: I didn’t take any pictures with the macro lens yet, just the fish eye and wide angle).

  1. One of these has been on my wish list for a year now, since Lauren at Hike Blog Love write about it. Your photos are fun. You may have inspired me to actually purchase an Olliclip! I’m really interested in how it does with macro shots. Let us know when you try it out. 🙂

    1. Cool! I love the lens but just need more interesting places to use the fish eye and wide angle. I found Paris to be perfect for it and will try out the macro once spring actually comes and we have some flowers!!!

  2. OMG! I just showed this to my husband…he sees $70 less in the bank account very soon…I’ve heard of the olloclip but had never seen photos where it’s been used before. Beautiful!

  3. wow what a cool thing… the iphone is the camera of the future! Some work collegues and I were just sayin how many pictures we would have missed without our trusty phones (although I don’t have one and carry a small camera everywhere).

    1. I do love the iPhone and it does take pretty great pictures. However, when compared with my bigger, real camera, it doesn’t! But with processing, I’m amazed by how well I can make the pictures work. 🙂

      1. It is certainly convenient though for everyday and those shots that we would have missed. I really need to get one. I have a cheap knock off China phone that doesn’t take clear photos at all. AN iphone sounds good for so many things!
