According to wikipedia: Macrophotography is close-up photography, usually of very small subjects. Classically a macrophotograph is one in which the size of the subject on the negative is greater than life size. However in modern use it refers to a finished photograph of a subject at greater than life size.[1] The ratio of the subject size on the film plane (or image sensor plane) to the actual subject size is known as the reproduction ratio. Likewise, a macro lens is classically one lens capable of reproduction ratios greater than 1:1, although it now refers to any lens with a large reproduction ratio, despite rarely exceeding 1:1.

Outside of technical photography and film-based processes, where the size of the image on the negative or image sensor is the subject of discussion, the finished print or on-screen image more commonly lends a photograph its macro status. For example, when producing a 6×4 inch (15×10 cm) print using 135 format film or sensor, a life-size result is possible with a lens having only a 1:4 reproduction ratio.

Great photos!

I don't know how I missed this album... oh wait, it was created before I joined SP! Well, I'm glad I found it now.

Cheers, Rob

Re: Great photos!

If you have some photos for the album, add your own!
In fact, I have a list for all my collaborative albums, take a look, I'm sure you can add several photos to some of them!

Re: Great photos!

Ok, I've added a few. But to take real good macro photos like most ones in this album, I would have to buy a better camera than my cheap and light weight one.
