Macrophotography SIG

Macrophotography SIG - oil and water

The goal of the Macro SIG is to take an up close look at the world around us. Almost every genre of photography can be looked with a macro / closeup perspective, cautions do apply to those doing wildlife. We encourage you to use whatever equipment you have, point and shoots, zoom lenses, macro lenses, extensions tubes. etc. We would like to share and explore techniques, equipment and ideas to take a closer look at the objects around us.
