On a cloudy day with the sun over your shoulder, the camera on the iPhone 4S never disappoints. I'm due for an upgrade in the Fall, and looking forward to exploring the improvements on what is already a solid option for taking quick snaps.
Achieving results with macro photography has a lot of hacks and tricks. From extension tubes to turning the lens around, there are great ways to experiment without investing heavily. My intro has been via the Olloclip on an iPhone 4S. With a big backyard reno underway it's been hard finding time to shoot, but there are a lot of creepy crawlers about. Until I find the time to set up something with the DSLR, I'll keep the smartphone handy.
