Macro photography is the art of combining intense magnification with imagery to create very close up but very clear pictures. It is defined as: 'Taking pictures of objects with ratio of 1:1 or larger'.
Macro photography has the potential to bring us into a whole new, tiny little world, where tiny insects look like huge Martians from outer space and water droplets look like the millennium dome! Getting close enough to see water droplets on a dragonfly's eye is normally somewhat of a challenge. But when you do get that close, the images are both awe inspiring and beautiful all at once.
To achieve this magnification, specialised lenses and equipment are used because picture quality can easily deteriorate when zooming in on a finished image.
Tripods are usually used to ensure a steady capture, because magnification amplifies movement, so it can be very difficult to get a clean shot when holding the camera in your hand.
Macro photography has been used in a huge range of applications, from professional nature photography in the National Geographic to extreme close ups in science labs. In the past, macro photography has usually been an expensive venture, but now, macro lenses attachments can be bought for your smartphone for the same price as your lunch.
