Macro photography 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 macro photography technically refers to the art of making very large photographs). By some definitions, a macro photograph is one in which the size of the subject on the negative or image sensor is life-size or greater. However, in other uses it refers to a finished photograph of a subject at greater than life-size.
