I recently purchased a macro lens for close -up photography. While I have been shooting photos of close ups all along, this lens delivers a much better photo. Without boring you with details, zooming in changes the plane of the camera’s sensor and the ratio. With a fixed macro lens, I move closer to the subject without changing what you or I am seeing.
Wikipedia explains it well.
“Macro photography … is extreme close-upphotography, usually of very small subjects, in which the size of the subject in the photograph is greater than life size (thoughmacrophotography technically refers to the art of making very large photographs).
The ratio of the subject size on the film plane (or sensor plane) to the actual subject size is known as the reproduction ratio. Likewise, a macro lens is classically a lens capable of reproduction ratios greater than 1:1…”
Rather than write about my new favorite lens, I will show you the results!
As always, thank you for supporting my work. If you are in the area, be sure to drop by Robinson Nature Center in Columbia, MD to see my ongoing exhibit “Through my Lens”.
Later this week I will be bringing you more macro photos too!
