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 https://bugsrus.smugmug.com/New-Insecta

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.
