Photo by Kristina Buceatchi Macro Photography Made Easy (and Inspirational)

Macro photography is the art of getting up close, really close, to your subject. Generally, photographers use a special macro lens to capture the details but you can play around with macro photography without doling out the big bucks. Here’s a quick tutorial that shows you how you can use a standard lens to make macro magic.

And if you’re looking for some great examples of macro photography, check out these sites. Photography Served has a great macro gallery by Joakim Kraemer and there’s an impressive collection at Smashing Magazine. Got some macro shots of your own you want to show off? Join the Closer and Closer macro photo group at Flickr. And, oh yeah, why not make a small (or big) book of your shots. Just a thought!

  1. macro photography is a great way to see the world differently – many ordinary things look amazing when you get up close.

    And as far as that suggestion – yes I did make a book (http://www.blurb.com/books/1463183 ) and a blog (www.dailymacrophoto.com) and intend to make more books soon! All of my macro work is done with basic digital cameras and one of my aims is to show others that you don’t need lots of expensive or complicated gear to take a good macro shot.

    So I encourage everyone to get out there and have a go at macro!
