Macro or Close-up – How close and intimate do you want to get with your subject

Macro / Close-up photography are almost synonymous but really are not the same.  While I love to write on all things about photography, sometimes it is better to simply link to some very good articles that explain the subject quite well in simple and easy to understand web articles.  they are listed below.

If you have questions about gear and hopefully you will please email me at Elliot@blueridgeworkshops.com and I’ll answer you quickly about what the best solutions that will work for you.  The first thing you want to consider is how much of the frame you are going to fill with the subject.  Is it going to be larger than life, the exact size of the article you are shooting, or smaller than life.
