Macro Photography is the technique of photographing a subject up close. Typically the subject fills most, if not the entire, image plane. Macro photography, simply put, is close-up photography. This usually requires a special lens that is optimized to focus sharply on a small area. Any giant structure quickly catches the human eye. But we often overlook the marvel in things that are tiny. Macro photography is the field that captures those tiny marvels by capturing small things up close. What I love about macro photography is that it allows us see an entirely different world that is filled with an abundance of detail that usually goes unnoticed by the naked eye. Here is a mind blowing showcase of macro photography for your inspiration.
