Mensagem:  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."
[http://www.sk.com.br/forum/display_message.php?message_id=12791]

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.
