Macro Photography is the technique of photographing a subject up close. Typically the subject fills most, if not the entire, image plane. Stunning macro photography is generally best achieved with special equipment, including a specially designed lens. However, most modern cameras (point and shoot especially) have macro setting options built into the camera; making it a very common, but no less stunning, technique.

Its often these types of photos that turn out the best. When we are provided a glimpse of something we might not otherwise pay much attention to is all of a sudden (in effect) shoved in our face, we cannot help but stop and take notice.
