Chuck Close, American artist noted for his highly inventive techniques used to paint large-scale portraits. By reproducing and magnifying photos, Close highlighted the mechanical shortcomings of photography and the flaws of the human face. Learn more about his life and work.
This new camera function is like a macro mode of sorts: Every time you get too close to an object and the Galaxy S20 Ultra realizes it cannot properly focus, it will now show a toggle called Use close-up zoom. Pressing this toggle sets the zoom level to 1.5x, so you can simply take a close-up shot without having to keep the phone physically close to whatever it is you’re trying to capture.
Close-up is a photo term that describes filling the frame with the subject. A close-up isolates the subject from its environment. Any lens or any camera is capable of taking a close-up. Macro defines how large a subject is captured in the camera. Macro is expressed as a ratio like 1:1, 1:2, or 1:4, and it’s really pretty easy to keep it all straight. A 1:1 macro image is telling us that the.The point of sail between beating and a beam reach is called a close reach. (1) A given point of sail (beating, close reach, beam reach, broad reach, and running downwind) is defined in reference to the true wind —the wind felt by a stationary observer—and, depending on the speed of the sailing craft, determines an appropriate sail setting, as determined by the apparent wind. (1).Then the medium close up is a shot that has the waist to the chest and up. The next closest shot is the close up which has the shoulders and up or maybe a little tighter on the head. Finally, there is the extreme close up shot which has one body part usually. This can be an eye, a hand or anything else. These shots can be used with any of the.
A framing technique, originating in photography (but present in film and television), which offers a very close and detailed view of an object or person. From Chuck Close’s pixelated studies of his own likeness to Jenny Saville’s intimate paintings of the distorted female body, artists often employ the close-up as more than a magnification tool, taking advantage of its ability to transform.Read More
That’s why extreme close-up photos look so odd to us. Unless you’re someone who routinely gets right up close to everyday objects, we bet you’ve never seen these things in quite this way before. It’s amazing how the eye glosses over so much detail, so perhaps we should be getting closer and having a really good look at the things we take for granted. Check out these twelve weird close.Read More
A close-up lens, while technically a lens, looks more like a filter and screws into the front of your lens the same way. For this reason they are also called close-up filters or supplementary filters. Close-up lenses work by reducing the minimum focusing distance of your lens. You can focus more closely to your subject, which gives you greater.Read More
Remember that close-up photography is a blanket term for regular close-ups, macro, and micro photography. Close-up means you’re just shooting at a short distance from the subject. You can use virtually any lens to achieve close-up photos.Read More
Close-ups. A while ago I was asked to take some pictures of snails which got me thinking about the perils of close-up photography in general. The first problem we need to look at is, how close the lens will focus. Lenses have a minimum focus distance which varies considerably from lens to lens, some longer zoom lenses have a ' macro' setting and will focus quite close but most lenses will not.Read More
This was an electrical spectacle called a sprite shooting upwards from the top of an intense thunderstorm, capable of rising up close to the edge of space about 95km high, and lasting for a few.Read More

Keulen called the border checks a “signal to The Hague” to “quickly scale-up” its response and align with neighboring countries. After Belgian authorities put up barricades on roads, they told cars with Dutch license plates to turn around and head back home. “The Dutch government is incompetent and ridiculous in its response to the coronavirus crisis” — Leopold Lippens, mayor of.Read More
