    seen in close-up/seen as a close-up

    Life is a tragedy when seen in close-up, but a comedy in long-shot.

    Is the above sentence grammatically correct?
    Or should it be "seen as a close-up" and "seen as a long-shot"?
    Isn't an article necessary before "close-up and "long-shot"?

    Re: seen in close-up/seen as a close-up

    Would using "as a close-up/long-shot" work?
    What is the difference?
