Macro/Micro: Photographic Extremes

logodrsmall This exhibit is about two photographic extremes, regardless of what you call them: Micro Photography (AKA Macro Photography) and Macrophotography (AKA Wide Angle Photography) we want to see your best work using these photographic tools.

Look it up, Macro (from Greek prefix “makros-” meaning “large”). Most sciences or areas of study use this prefix as defined. Macroeconomics, for example: “dealing with the behavior of the whole economy”. Microeconomics: “study of the behavior of small economic units, such as that of individual consumers, opposite of macroeconomics”. So what happened with Photography? Commonly, photographers call images of things small and extreme closeups, Macro Photography. What then is Microphotography? Interestingly, Nikon uses the term Micro for it’s close focusing lenses, but not Canon. So, even the manufacturers don’t agree.

Microphotography reveals a world unseen by the naked eye. It often exposes patterns and designs that create sublime abstract images. Macrophotography gathers a view often larger and grander than can be gathered with the human eye. Both introduce distortions either through lens characteristics or stitching construction techniques that are creative tools used to produce these distinctive images.
