How To Level Up Your Selfies

 

When In Manila, the selfie capital of the world, taking selfies has never been this easy.  There actually is a kit made up of different lenses, a monopod (selfiepod) and a bluetooth trigger to make everything easier for you. What??? there actually is something like this? Im not really a selfie fan, but when I heard about this, I decided to take it to my shoots with me to see how much fun it really is.

But first, a photography lesson 🙂

It comes with 3 types of lenses: a fisheye lens, a wide-angle lens and a macro lens. Here they are :

How To Level Up Your Selfies

 

Normally without these lens extensions, taking a photo from your cam phone would look like this.

Now, if you put on the wide-angle lens, it would look like this.

Without stepping away, more area (2x) is captured on your phone.  The wide-angle lens simply screws on to the Macro lens.

A fish-eye lens would look like this :

And a macro lens would look like this:

You need to go really close 1/2″ (13mm) to capture photographs like this. It’s like zooming 10x into the photo. 

All you need to do is clip these lenses onto the front of your phone’s camera.

Assembling it is really easy, too. The first step involves the monopod, which closes and extends from 20 -97 cm,  net weight 130g and max weight 500g – so its pretty light and easy to put in your bag or anywhere.

The bluetooth device comes with a charger.  It has a built-in lithium battery that could take 6000 photos after fully charging and can be used up to 10 meters. It also has a strap hole design for easy carrying.
