I just wonder how many macro photographer here in Miri, if you know any can you share here?
Thanks

define macro photographer…hehehe im noobie`

people who make images like these

diy 85mm1.8 nikon… :smiley:

very hard to tell the real definition as it is quite technical and hard to understand,in another word,it can be roughly define as nature photographer(BUT NOT THOSE WHO PHOTOGRAPHED BIRD) or insect/bug photographer, often use a macro lenses or another macro conversion alternative to achive magnify.

let see example.

you can see it here pakcikmacro.multiply.com

Erm…macro lenses can shoot bird but normally,the focal length wont be that far which enough for you too shoot them.
Macro photography is close-up photography of usually very small subjects. The classical definition is that the image projected on the “film plane” (i.e., film or a digital sensor) is close to the same size as the subject.[citation needed]
In recent years, the term macro has been used in marketing material to mean being able to focus on a subject close enough so that when a regular 64 inch (1510 cm) print is made, the image is life-size or larger.[citation needed] With 35mm film this requires a magnification ratio of only approximately 1:4, which demands a lower lens quality than 1:1. With digital cameras the actual image size is rarely stated, so that the magnification ratio is largely irrelevant; cameras instead advertise their closest focusing distance.

Macro lenses can use as a normal lenses as well but normally the autofocus speed is not good as we usually use manual focus in macro shooting.

This is atough question lah kawan…
But for me, macro is only when you really achieve 1:1 image,but some close up shot which you no need to magnify the imgae kao kao is also good,but have to include interesting composition and background as well.

hey inspire

you dont need to sound so techical to all of us noobies with “film plain” and all that

Basically it is the photography of small objects, that’s it…so simple
