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). Typically, subjects of macro photography are very small.

This Guide covers:

  • Does Equipment Matter?
  • Lenses: Short Macro, Standard Macro, Tele-Macro
  • 3 Alternatives (if you’re on a budget)
  • How You can Get familiar with Your subject
  • Using Effective aperture
  • Extreme Macro
  • Learning to ‘see’
  • And much more…
