  • Macro Photography Presented by Ferd

  • Definition Macro photography is extreme close-up photography, usually of very small subjects, in which the size of the subject in the photograph is greater than life size.

  • Formal Definition The technically correct definition would be to take an image at a 1:1 ratio but, in general usage, the term has come to mean any close-up photography. 1:1 means the image on the sensor is the same size as the actual object.

  • Subjects ● Flowers ● Insects ● Common objects

  • Macro Lens ● Best choice ● Price varies ● Usually 1:1 ● Can be used

    for normal photography

  • Extension Tubes ● Move lens

    away from camera body

    ● Limited light ● Electrical

    contacts much more expensive

  • Close-up Lens

    ● Screws on like a filter

  • Reversing Ring ● One end

    mounts to camera

    ● Reversed lens screws onto other end

  • Stacked Lenses ● Reversing ring

    with two sets of threads

    ● Screws onto zoom lens

    ● Reversed prime lens screws on other end

  • Light is the problem ● Extremely shallow depth of field

    (DOF) requires small aperture ● Extension tubes, close-up lenses,

    and stacked lenses rob light

  • Ring Light ● Mounts around

    lens ● May be

    continuous ($) or flash ($$$)

  • Macro Rails

    ● Allows fine focus adjustments in two directions

  • Focus Stacking ● Take many pictures, adjusting the

    focus each time ● Combine all the files into a single

    image ● Similar to HDR but with different

    areas in focus

  • ● Name holders

    ● Colored backdrops
