Close-up photos of tiny objects usually refer to macro photography. In order to succeed with macro photos one should equip his photo camera with a specifically designed macro lens, offering typical magnification ratio of 1:1. This ratio denotes that the object will appear on the photo sensor in the same size as it is in real. In order to receive even greater magnification, macro photographers may use extension tubes.
