Writing about photography's always a challenge for me. My father is a photographer, and the intricacies of the technology fascinate me, so I'm always drawn to researching image sensors and lenses and autofocus systems. Professional photography is as much art as science, but really learning macro photography requires some serious study of the relationship between a digital camera's image sensor and focal length. As I found out, there's much more to macro than shooting a mere close-up! I balanced out research into lenses and extension tubes by spending way too much time looking at galleries of macro photographs. Lizards have the coolest eyes.
