Smartphone gadgets that will make you a photography pro

Thanks to our mobile devices and the editing apps that come with them, we can now take high-quality photos and edit them without too much effort.



Your smartphone can take pretty good photos, but they can look much better with a few smart accessories.

These are the most useful and practical accessories that will have you step up your smartphone photography game:

The Olloclip 4-in-1

You’ve probably seen these lenses that you can clamp over the top of your iPhone or Android camera lens to help capture more around you. The Olloclip 4-in-1 includes fisheye lens, wide-angle lens, 10x macro lens for extreme close-up shots, and 15x macro lens, too. You can switch between these glass lenses in seconds and they work with all of your favorite photo and video apps. Make sure you buy the one that fits your specific phone model.

The FLIR ONE is a clever thermal imaging camera accessory that snaps underneath your iPhone or Android. It then lets you see the heat emanating out of a person, pet, or inanimate object. For example, you can spot someone in an underground garage because of their heat signature or see where energy is escaping in your household. It can also tell you the temperature of what you are pointing it at.

The Lumee iPhone case

You probably know that when taking selfies the lighting isn’t the best since the flash is in the back of the phone and the photos turn out to be not that flattering. But the Lumee smartphone case from Logixx changes all of that because it lights up your face for selfies. This unique smartphone case has front-facing lighting that you can use for taking pictures. It has bright adjustable LED lights powered by a rechargeable battery built into the case. Simply press the small button on the back to illuminate your face and you are good to go. There are also few different models to choose from.
