One thing I have found is light can be a problem the closer you are to the subject so yesterday ordered myself a nikon close up system.
Hopefully Kentlass is right and some experienced macro people out there will join in and give us all pointers.
I am not an expert photographer but do make up for it in enthusiasm !
Well you're certainly correct about lighting, so flash is also something to look at.
This attached flower has just recently bloomed in my garden and is approx 6-8mm dia.
Two sigma guns +on-board flash.
