For the purposes of this forum (and the vast majority of the technical photography world), Macro-Photography is defined as 1:1 magnification (life-size), up to 10:1 magnification (10x life-size), usually captured with a true macro lens. 1:1 magnification means that the captured image on a CMOS sensor (or film) is exact same size as original subject. Macro dimensions can also be achieved by cropping a near-macro image.
Image capture is properly called macrography, photo-macrography, or macro-photography. Viewing is called macroscopy.
This is a forum dedicated to discussing true macro technique, and to share results obtained with macro lenses & macro gear, such as bellows, extension tubes, reversed lenses, ring lights & other macro lighting.Each thread must have AT LEAST ONE macro-photograph
. Accompanying close-up photos, and/or reference or location photos are allowed. No thread high-jacking
will be allowed. Stay on Original Poster's topic, or your post will be removed.
Also, do not post any image on another member's thread
, without specific permission from the OP. Unauthorized images will be removed.

Comparisons will be made to: close-up photography, which is defined as 1:10 magnification (1/10th life-size) up to near life-size; and to micro-photography, which is defined as 10:1 magnification (10x life-size) & greater. Examples of close-ups are allowed only for the purpose of comparison with a true macro image.
