Test yourself and take part in this close-up challenge, created be Lenstore, and see whether you can identify the items pictured using macrophotography which combines microscopes with photography.

From cereal to dried pasta and pages of a book and guitar strings, you will be shown a series of 10 images and given 30 seconds to identify what has been photographed.

To make it a little easier, the image will slowly zoom out to reveal more and there is a multiple-choice answer.

Macrophotography is extreme close-up photography in which the size of the subject in the photographer is larger than life size.
