    Unfortunately, what you're showing is not "macro". It is simply close in.

    What lens are you using? What's the minimum focusing distance of that lens?

    What do you plan to be taking photos of for your Macro photography? Inanimate objects that you set up for the photo yourself? Or are you more likely to go out and about and explore the wilderness and find insects etc etc?
    If its the former, do you have a lightbox? I found it helped so much when taking photos of my little warhammer minatures to ensure the lighting is always on point!

    But yes as the other reply said its not really macro what you have there - just close up! What setup did you use there?

    It looks like you're using one of those swiss army knife cameras. It's a fujifilm from the looks of it. What you need to do is put your camera in the flower icon mode, then get about 1cm from your target then either zoom or not to compose your target. And also dont forget to mount your cam on a tripod.

    Also read page 37 of your manual for more info which can be found on this link right here: http://www.fujifilm.com/support/dig...ex/s/finepix_s9400w-s9200-s9100_manual_en.pdf
