Any tips for Iphone camera?

Does anyone know how to take photos with a smart phone camera- everything is blue.

I read something about Gel filters; i went to the app store but i wasn't even sure what i was searching for.

Thanks.

Go to a camera store. Orange colored film gels. Not expensive at all. IMG_1880.jpg

press the phone up against your tank glass and zoom in to the coral you want to take a picture of. no filter required.

Check out this post. I have been doing this for a very long time with great success. You can see the pictures I have taken with the gel filters and clip on macro lens on my Nexus.
