Short Guide to Macro Photography

Macro photography is often casually referred to as “close-up” photography.

While it’s probably a safe bet that no one is going to be shunned by their fellow photographers for tossing around such a loose definition, the classical definition of macro photography is a photograph in which the subject is magnified to life-size or greater (denoted by the ratio 1:1).

  • Using Effective aperture
