Macro and Close Up
Macro photography involves creating an image in which the size of the subject in the photograph is greater than life size. A true macro photograph is one in which the size of the subject on the negative or image sensor is life size or greater. Typically, subjects of macro photography are very small, such as insects or flowers; larger objects may also prove useful as macro photography subjects if, for instance, you want to focus on some very specific, smaller detail of the large object in question. Close-up photography is the act of photographing objects in close range so the subject you are photographing fills the frame. In other words, it’s the act of photographing subjects close.
