Part II: Techniques Unlimited > Macro Photography

Chapter 10. Macro Photography

Although there are dedicated photographers who specialize in the scenic, architectural, and travel photography discussed in the last three chapters, all three of those types of picture taking are also popular with dabblers who dip their toes into those creative waters from time to time. However, macro, or close-up, photography tends to become a way of life for anyone who tries it seriously.

Part of the reason is that to get the very best macro photos you might have to make an investment in a gadget or two. That’s especially true if you’re working with a digital SLR. Most non-SLR digital models can focus down to an inch or so with no additional equipment, but to get that close with a dSLR you’ll often need a special lens or a screw-on close-up attachment, and may find the need (real or imagined) for other accessories. Once you’ve got the right gear, macro photography tends to become an infectious pursuit, and the only way to scratch the itch is to take more macro photos.
