Macro photography is close-up photography typically captured at life-size resolution and at really close distances. While the Nokia Lumia 1020 may not be able to capture images at life size resolution, WPCentral reader AccentAE86 has found a way to boost the magnification of the 41MP PureView camera by taping a close-up filter to the camera.
The filter magnifies the image to pull in more detail and coupled with Nokia's zoom feature, the results can be fantastic. Hit the break to see a few of AccentAE86's macro shots and the macro set-up he's using.
AccentAE86 does not that in shooting macro with the Lumia 1020, you are challenged with the inability to stop down the lens for greater depth of field. You'll need to be a little patient and may have to choose a better angle to approach things to maximize what depth you have.
Now I've shot my fair share of macro photos over the years and while taping a filter to the front of your Lumia 1020's camera may not be the most conventional approach to macro photography, the end product can hold it's own rather nicely.
