40 Amazing Examples of Macro Photography

Macro photography, simply put, is close-up photography. This usually requires a special lens that is optimized to focus sharply on a small area. What I love about macro photography is that it allows us see an entirely different world that is filled with an abundance of detail that usually goes unnoticed by the naked eye.

Here is a collection of 40 truly amazing macro photographs from various photographers. To see larger versions of the photographs and to learn more about both the photograph and photographer, be sure to click on the images.

    inspiring macro photography..the 1st images is very interesting..loved the contrast in few of the pics also the 1st black & white picture is a vry good capture..the advantage of the macro lens is it can be used as a normal or telephoto lens out to infinity..

      I took the snow flake one. My camera is fairly expensive, but you don’t need to spend all that much to do macro. I started with a $300 used compact camera, and eventually upgraded to an SLR (which can be as low as $300 now I think). I have a good macro lens which I bought for $300 used, and I got a whole lot closer by putting a dipter on the end of it. However, you can get the same magnification with a reversed 28mm lens which would be much cheaper (but not as flexible, and nowhere near as convenient).

    Brilliant work!
    I have been a great fan of macro-photo for a while now and do most of my own shots in the same manner with stellar results even with a relatively inexpensive Nikon point and shoot.
    However, your work is extraordinary!
    I would like to know more about your camera and lens choices…lighting is especially well done…bless on with ya! keep clicking!
