Macrophotography is the photography of small things.
That’s the loose (and somewhat prosaic) definition anyway. In truth, there is no agreed upon standard for what constitutes a ‘macro’ photo — it’s rather subjective; c.f. the first three paragraphs of the Wikipedia “Macrophotography” page for a litany of conflicting and overlapping definitions.
My definition of what qualifies as “macro” is technical, but pretty loose. I use magnification as the figure of merit. Anything from about 1/5th to about 10x magnification qualifies as macro for me. Less than 1/5th magnification I’d consider “close-up” (highly scientific term) and greater than 10x I’d consider microscopy.
Now that we’ve defined our terms, here are a few macrophotographs of electronic stuff. All of them were a blast to shoot. I hope you enjoy them.
