Hi Gaurav

Marc is giving good advice. Macro is always a compromise between depth of field and reaching the diffraction limit of your lense. I typically use f13 or f16 for macro work and sometimes on specialist lenses go >f22. You can see some of my stuff here

You nearly always need some additional lighting. There are lots of relatively chep ways to do this using home made diffusion and extensions arms.

Good luck and I like the lizard.


Thank you ed for your inputs. You have pretty good collection of images on your page.
