Macro Photography, Macro Lens Reviews and Macro Photography Techniques

Macro photography is a great and wonderful area of photography. It offers excellent opportunities to practice lighting techniques, composition and various technical skills in the comfort of your own home or studio. While my own macro passion is the photography of my fossil, rock and crystal collection, I also enjoy insect photography and the use of macro techniques on various other subjects.

Below are links to some specifically macro articles on DIMi. Below that are links to the reviews of macro lenses and other equipment suited for macro use.
