You don’t need traveling for thousand of miles to discovery new world!!
There is an amazing world just in your garden.
We are pleasure to introduce Michele Polverini that I believe is going to be a new talent in
Macro World. Yes, it’ enough to take a look at this colorful picture to understand that you are not alone!
He is a professional photograph come from a small town Monteleone d’Orvieto in Umbria ( Italy) where he spend a lot time study new technique to get better result as you can see.
You can order this and more picture from his web site Macro Photo.it in high resolution.
What’s Macrophoto means?
Macro photography (or photomicrography or macrography, and sometimes
macrophotography), is extreme close-up photography, usually of very small subjects, in which the size of the subject in the photograph is greater than life size (though macrophotography technically refers to the art of making very large photographs).
However, in other uses it refers to a finished photograph of a subject at greater than life size.
The ratio of the subject size on the film plane (or sensor plane) to the actual subject size is known as the reproduction ratio.
Likewise, a macro lens is classically a lens capable of reproduction ratios of at least 1:1, although it often refers to any lens with a large reproduction ratio, despite rarely exceeding 1:1.
Apart from technical photography and film-based processes, where the size of the image on the negative or image sensor is the subject of discussion, the finished print or on-screen image more commonly lends a photograph its macro status. For example, when producing a 6×4 inch (15×10 cm) print using 135 format (3.6×2.4 cm) film or sensor, a life-size result is possible with a lens having only a 1:4 reproduction ratio.
Reproduction ratios much greater than 1:1 are considered to be photomicrography, often achieved with digital microscope (photomicrography should not be confused with microphotography, the art of making very small photographs, such as for microforms).
Due to advances in sensor technology, today’s small-sensor digital cameras can rival the macro capabilities of a DSLR with a “true” macro lens, despite having a lower reproduction ratio, making macro photography more widely accessible at a lower cost. In the digital age, a “true” macro photograph can be more practically defined as a photograph with a vertical subject height of 24 mm or less.
