17 May Slides.- Macro Photography
Macro photography, also known as macrophotography, is the practice of photographing a subject at a very close distance, greater than what a standard lens, 50mm or 35-80, allows by itself, achieving a true size ratio (1: 1 scale). In other words, the subject would be the same size on the initial as it is on the negative. Although the true concept of macro photography is a snapshot that captures photographs that are larger than the subject, up to a magnification of ten times (x10), whether they exceed this amount of magnification, we would be talking about microphotography, in which case we should generally use a microscope.
To get closer to the subject we can choose different solutions, each with its advantages and disadvantages, not necessarily expensive, since there are for all budgets.
