2. Macro Photography This is extreme close-up photography, usually of very small subjects, in which the size of the subject in the photograph, is greater than its real life size. Due to advances in sensor technology, todays small-sensor digital cameras can rival the macro capabilities of a DSLR with a true macro lens, despite having a lower reproduction ratio, making macro photography more widely accessible at a lower cost. "Macro" lenses specifically designed for close-up work, with a long barrel for close focusing and optimized for high reproduction ratios, are one of the most common tools for macro photography. TAKING PICTURES OF INSECTS AND SMALL OBJECTS 3.
