Micro and Macro Photography with Film
Text and Photography by Mark LaMonica
When I'm photographing an assignment, there's always a need for a "detailed" shot that I may not be able to get with
a standard lens, so I've been a big user of Micro/Macro lenses. They come in several different focal lengths and I
tend to prefer the ones at or above 100mm. I will use a Micro/Macro lens in lower focal lengths if I'm photographing
larger subjects where I don't need to be 1" away or if I don't need shallow depth of field or speed of an f1.4 or faster
lens. These pictures were taken with film a 100mm macro/micro lens.
