the last couple of years I have been engaged almost exclusively
with photomicrography. Although I found it immensely rewarding I
did miss photomacrography and close-up photography. Given the limited
amount of time I have for photography, I have decided to devote
my efforts almost entirely to photomacrography and close-up photography.
This site is much more than just image galleries, I have included
basic articles on photomacrography and techniques. Also note that
I have written product reviews which appear in the "Articles"
section. These are "real world" reviews about how a product
performs for me in the field. Please keep coming back and checking
for new content and images as I update this site regularly.
For the purposes
of this website close-up photography will include images
made at less than 1:1 (life size) image magnification ratios
at the film plane or ccd/cmos sensor plane. Typically,
close-up photography encompasses 1:10 (1/10th life size) up to
1:1 (life size) image magnification ratios. True photomacrography
starts at 1:1 (life size) image magnification ratios up to
about 20:1 (20x life size) image magnification ratios at
the film plane or ccd/cmos sensor plane.
