Macro photography is a specialized area typically dealing with very small subjects. Macro photography is often defined as photography when the image focussed onto the sensor plane is life-size or larger. Macro lenses are lenses which are designed with macro photography in mind by allowing for closer focussing distances. There are also lower cost alternatives such as close up filters, extension tubes and reverse lens mounts.
