Doesn't every modern camera have a macro setting? I'm not meaning to be overly technical!

Closeup and macro are not the same thing.
Close up just means the lens is physically close to the subject of the photo. Zoomed images are a form of closeup, but aren't really a 'closeup' as the lens is still quite distant from the subject.
Macro can be a closeup for sure (and usually is) but magnification is always involved in macro photography while magnification is not necessary in closeup shots.

See, I'm not the expert! My camera has a macro setting and it's cool to use. :)
