I can highly recommend you to look into this little marvel:

http://www.raynox.co.jp/english/dcr/dcr250/indexdcr250eg.htm

That you place at the end of your lens (works great up to 62mm filter thread), and if you do an image search you will find lots of nice images that shows how effective this lens can be, even with a standard kit lens.

What you must remember is that for proper macro photography, using a dedicated macro lens or the Raynox/lens combo, you will get very close to the subject, and therefore using the flash on the cameras hotshoe becomes pointless, the light simply will not reach the subject.

Also, using a dedicated macro lens or a Raynox/lens combo you will have to use manual focus, or set the focus where you want it, and then move the camera towards the subject until it you reach focus.

One image at a time I hope to one day master the art of imagery
