Macrophotography

If you've heard the term macrophotography and have thought it's some sort of digital photo software, well, you should think again. The term macro means large, so you might conclude the term means large photographs. No, that isn't quite it, because the term actually refers to how the subjects appear in the photographs—large, close-up, and very personal.

Although the principles behind macrophotography are in every sense the same as ordinary photography, there's nothing ordinary about the results. That's because macrophotography takes the ordinary and captures it from an extraordinary view-point, as shown in Figure A. If you've long wanted to try macrophotography, there's no better time than now. Macro features are standard on many digital cameras today, so if you've never been any closer to a subject than three feet away, move in and explore the exciting world of macrophotography.
