Louis Hardan and Jordi Manauta Macro photography is the art of close-up, more often, it is used on very small subjects, such as flowers and insects. Photography is powerful in dentistry, its numerous applications such as diagnosis and treatment planning, legal documentation, publishing and lecturing has made digital photography a standard of care in modern dental practices. Recently, smartphones have come a long way in digital photography, the purpose of this article is to demonstrate the capacity of these devices to take high quality pictures useful in different types of documentation and communication. An article by Louis Hardan and Jordi Manuta. High-quality images are an excellent communication tool because cameras are able to capture an extensive variety of details. Even some spectrophotometers are small digital cameras; therefore, most digital cameras have infinite potential, regardless of whether they are single-lens reflex (SLR), compact digital, or included in a smartphone or tablet. Nowadays the DSLR (Digital Single Lens Reflex) cameras are widely used in dentistry to take high definition macro images but mobile devices are already producing quality pictures due to recent technology development. Smartphones and tablet cameras were designed for public use and not for dentistry, Macro functionality was developed to use these devices as scanners, in order to be able to copy documents and send them immediately. Therefore, No matter how serious a photographer is, most people use smartphones to capture moments and situations such as snapshots. To overcome the bad reputation of smartphones in producing low quality pictures, people must treat this device as a camera and not as phone.
Is hard to believe that these images were made with a cell phone, some years back, we wouldn’t have imagined the reach of this technology. Now is here, and in terms of evolution and technological advance this is only the beginning, which is already outstanding.
