CloseUp & Macro Photography

Close-up photography and macrophotography are often used interchangeably, but there is a slight differencebetween the two. Close-up photography generally refers to taking pictures ofsmall subjects at close distances, but it does not necessarily require a truemacro lens or a magnification ratio of 1:1 or higher. Macro photography, on theother hand, specifically refers to photography that captures images at amagnification ratio of 1:1 or higher, resulting in extreme close-up images. Close-upphotography, on the other hand, can be achieved with a variety of lenses,including standard or zoom lenses that may not have true macro capabilities.Close-up images may still capture a lot of detail, but they may not have theextreme magnification and clarity of true macro images.


Street Photography

Street photography is a genre ofphotography that involves capturing candid and un-staged photographs of peopleand life in public places, typically in urban environments such as streets,parks, public transportation and plazas. The primary aim of street photographyis to capture real-life situations and emotions as they happen spontaneously,without any intervention or manipulation by the photographer. It often featurespeople going about their daily activities, but can also include architecture,signage, and other elements of the urban environment.
