What is macro?
The term ‘macro photography’ has changed its meaning over the years. Originally it specifically referred to photography where the image captured by the camera was the same size (life-size) or larger than the subject. However, the current meanings of ‘macro’ and ‘close-up’ have blurred and the two terms are now used almost interchangeably.
