close-up and macro

A close-up photography is a type of shot that tightly frames a person or object. ... Close-ups display the most detail, but they do not include the broader scene.

The camera lens you use is the real defining difference between close up and macro photography. 

Anyone can take a close-up picture, such as with a telephoto lens. But generally, macro photography can only be created with a macro lens.
