Close-Up & Macro Photography

I’m not a Close Up Macro Photography purist.

I use lenses that range from 1:4 to 1:1 magnification for this work.
What I really enjoy most about so-labeled macro lenses is the lack of perceptual distortion they provide to the image as opposed to normal close up work done with ultra and wide angle lenses.
