CAPA Spring Digital Macro Competition


A macro photograph is one in which the size of the subject in the photograph on the sensor or negative is equal to or greater than life size. This photograph will be taken using a dedicated macro prime lens capable of a reproduction ratio of at least 1:1. This is a macro competition, no close up filters, no zoom lens.

Macro photography provides an intimate look at a subject in detail. Judges will be looking at key elements, such as composition, technique, subject matter, focus, with an emphasis on creativity and innovation. Theme for this competition is open to any subject.

Editing may include focus stacking, multiple exposures and composites as long as all of the images meet the macro standard above and have been photographed by the entrant.
