Part II: Techniques Unlimited > Macro Photography

Chapter 9. Macro Photography

Figure .


Every type of photography presents its own challenges and unique rewards, and macro, or close-up, photography is no exception. Some types of close-up pictures involve inanimate objects that will remain stolidly in front of your camera for hours while you arrange lighting and choose the perfect angle. Other macro photographs picture flighty living creatures that can scarcely be coaxed to remain in the frame long enough for an exposure or two. You can take leisurely close-up pictures indoors in a mini-studio of your devising, or take your work outdoors and suffer the vagaries of the environment. Macro photographs can picture the familiar in new ways, or result in images that are abstract and thought provoking.
