Macro Photography

Macro photography, in essence, is a photography technique where the photographer takes photos of small subjects and makes the sizes of said subjects larger than life.

In order to take the photos, the photographer has to use a certain type of lens (case in point, a macro lens). 45–65 mm is used in product photography. It features small objects that can be approached closely without causing undesirable influence, and it provides scenes requiring natural background perspective.
