About This Group


Banners & Titles by ..

*This Group is for those photographers who take extreme close-ups shots of anything and everything (within reason) taken with a camera…..but please remember that this is a family orientated group

As the name suggests, an extreme version of a close up generally magnifies beyond that which the human eye would experience in reality. An extreme close-up of an animal’s face, for instance, would show only the mouth or eyes, without any background detail whatsoever.

Please read the detailed explanation of micro.macro close up before submitting an image for moderation… Click HERE

This Group is open to anyone and everyone who can submit close-up captures to the extreme, showing that, which isn’t normally seen by the naked eye unless you were right on top of it.
………………………..The closer the better…
Some close ups other than Macro and Micro may be accepted at the moderators own discretion…*
