Theme: Close-Up

Are you ready for your close-up?

Macrophotography or extreme close-up photography magnifies smaller subjects and focuses on the finer details of larger objects. So, you can get eye-to-eye with an insect or right down into the network of the fine veins on a leaf.  

This macrophotography guide from Masterclass gets into the basics for beginners. If you’re serious about getting better close-ups, you will need a special lens for your camera. For those just starting out, a macro lens with a focal length of 100mm to 150mm is recommended.

Of course, you can also take some impressive close-ups with your phone with no special equipment needed. Smartphone cameras get better with every model, but if you don’t have the latest and greatest, a clip-on macro lens for your phone can help.
