    Looks like a microfiche photograph. If you wanted to archive images, you would reduce them onto slides....

    That reminds me of my first odd photographic vocabulary lesson.
    There is microphotography and photomiscroscopy. One is making small pictures (like microfilm) and the other is making pictures of small things (like bacteria). Wish I could reliably remember which was which (not that it comes up much these days).

    A microphotograph is a tiny photograph. Like a photo of rocket plans reduced to the size of a period and put onto a bible belonging to a spy. A photomicrograph is a very, very close up. Like the hairs up a fly's nose. So what's a macrophotograph?

    A photomicrograph is a photo taken through a microscope. A macrophotograph is a close up. So I guess in some instances the terminology might be ambiguous.

    Why are there no speaker jacks on a stereo camera?

    A macrophotograph is a very large photograph (analogous to a microphotograph being a very small photograph). A close up is properly called a photomacrograph.
    So though the usual name is macrophotography, it's really photomacrography.
    Macrophotography is what you do using an enlarger.

    The big picture

    Q.G.---I think you got it right!

    My Greek thesaurus: Macro=long, large, lengthy, wide, broad; Micro=small, little, diminutive; Photo=light,fire; Graph=to write (not wright, rite, or right), draw, to inscribe.

    Mix and match in English and you get what makes our language unsurpassed when it comes to technology.
