Even though the human eye has about 576 megapixels, we’re still not capable of zooming in and examining tiny objects. Thanks to macro photography, a.k.a. macrography, we’re able to enjoy beautiful close-up photographs of very small subjects. To technically define a photograph as macro, the size of the subject needs to be greater than life size. In order to take macro photographs, you’ll need a lens that is capable of reproducing ratios greater than 1:1.

Thanks to the advances in sensor technology, a small-sensor digital camera can rival the macro capabilities of a flagship DSLR with a “true” macro lens. Despite the lower reproduction ratio, producing macro photography is broadly accessible at a bargain. Macro Photography does require solid technique and visual style, so don’t think that you can just pickup a camera and snap gorgeous photos. “Patience is a virtue,” and you will certainly need it to capture great shots.

If you’re a photographer looking to brush up on your macro photography skills or a beginner, we’ve collected a few useful resources that’ll help you succeed:

Today we collected some stunning examples of macro photography for your inspiration. All of the images are linked to their respected authors.
