From CR so pertinently comes this naturally written example using the composite "close-up" as an adjective:
"...a 2 by 2 close-up photo for identification."
By "close-up photo" CR meant a picture taken at close range (= foto de perto)
You might like take a close-up look at the way other people take a close-up look at nature conservation.
Here again goes the dictionary definition, certainly a close-up look at the innards of the very entry you had previously checked but never understood.
Main Entry: close-up
Etymology: close up, adverb
1 a : a motion picture taken very near an object or person to emphasize detail strongly or accentuate mood
1 b : a photograph taken at close range

2 a : a close or intimate view or examination of anything
2 b : a voice amplified to give the effect of issuing from close proximity
2 c : a theatrical scene in which action is focused on the facial expression and emotional tension of certain characters
2 d : a compact intimate biography <it affords unique close-ups of key actors in political melodrama being played in Europe>
