M is for Macro – #AtoZChallenge – 2020

M is for Macro

Macro as a word has many meanings. It often stands as the opposite of ‘micro,’ and refers to things that are large enough to see without assistance.

In photography, macro refers to photographic techniques used to make small subjects large enough to see easily. Basically, it’s magnification.

Macro photography often requires a special macro lens. But with this lens, it is possible to take close-up images of very small objects.
