Sebelum aku nak posting beberapa gambar, terlebih dahulu aku kenalah tahu apa itu Macro dan Close-up Photography? Macam mana nak fahamkan, senang je google kat internet :D
Dari Photography.about.com :
Definition: Macro photography is taking extremely close-up images of subjects. The technically correct definition would be to take an image at a 1:1 ratio but, in general usage, the term has come to mean any close-up photography.
Macro capable photography lenses are marked with magnification ratios such as 1:1 or 1:5. A 1:1 ratio means that the image would be the same size on film (negative) as in real life. A 1:5 ratio would mean that the subject would be 1/5 the size on film as it is in real life. Due to the small size of 35mm negatives and digital sensors, a 1:5 ratio is nearly life size when printed onto 4″x6″ paper.
Also Known As: close-up photography

For almost a week I have been searching for this answer. The answer to “what is macro photography” For those who have been in photography for ages, this may sound to be a silly question, but for someone who is new, it can be quite confusing.
What make macro photography confusing? Well macro photography sometime has closely associated with close up photography. This is simply due to some camera manufacture uses the word “Marco” for close up photography.
Close up and macro are totally difference topic and they are not the same.
So what is Marco Photography?
After days of research and asking around, I finally manage to come to an understanding.
By simple definition, Marco Photography means capturing an image with enlargement ratio between image and object of 1:1 or greater. Confuse?
In simple term, when the object that is going to photograph have a physical size of 1cm in Size, when the image of this object is capture on a digital camera with a sensor size of 1cm, and fully fill the sensor, then you have a magnification ration of 1:1 and this is call macro.
Dari KenRockwell.com :
Macro photography is getting close. Technically macro is defined as photos which are made between 1/10 life size and life size. Normal photography is defined as less than 1/10 life size, and microphotography is defined as greater than life size. Don’t worry about this since even these terms are defined differently by different people. For instance, Nikon, who also makes many microscopes, refers to their macro lenses as “micro” lenses.
Hmm, pening gak aku nak memahamkannya… Banyak sangat definisi tentang Macro dan Close-up kat internet. Cara lain nak bagi paham… tunjukkan pada yang pakar :D. Komen dan kritikan amat2 dialu-alukan.

Ok la, lepas ni aku nak ambil banyak-banyak lagi gambar tumbuhan @ serangga menggunakan Macro converter. Bagi aku, merakamkan gambar-gambar sebegini memerlukan kesabaran dan timing yang tepat bagi menghasilkan depth of field yang dikehendaki.Photographer +60 019 263 3206
