Ah, the science geek in me rejoices. What more could a former biochemist/molecular biologist want? It’s every science girl’s dream come true. Another iphone add-on goes onto the wish list.

Or…are you ready for this? You can make your own with these instructions. Be still my heart! I can’t take any more!

But wait, there’s more. How about making this one for only $10 bucks. Click here to see the images and how-to.

I feel a new weekend project coming up. This girl is just plain giddy with excitement. Little Man loves using microscopes, so he’s going to be really excited about this project.

Anyone else think this is pretty cool? Come on, I can’t be the only one, right?!

iPhoneography: the art of capturing, editing and processing photos with an iphone

Today as we worked in the yard, I decided to photograph all the creepy-crawly insects we came across. I whipped out my handy-dandy iphone whenever I caught sight of something interesting. If you read my blog at all, you already know that I tend to do that a lot. All of my Be Still photos are taken, edited and processed by my iphone. I have found some really cool apps that help me take my photos where I want them to be. I guess you could say I’ve turned into an iphoneographer of sorts. I enjoy catching fleeting moments of interest and beauty while I’m on the go. Don’t get me wrong–I still enjoy using my nice cameras. But there is something fun and addictive about iphoneography in general. That’s why I need these Olloclip lenses for my phone! Aren’t they awesome?! They’re on my wish list for now.

So tell me, do you love to capture images on your iphone as much as I do? Do you use apps to edit and process those images?
