    If it's not good enough you're not close enough.

    Learn how to focus stack

    Understand what depth of field is and how to control it

    Use a good sturdy tripod along with a macro focusing rail

    Using a 1:1 macro lens produces the best results.  A 50mm 1:1 macro is good for copy work.  Longer focal length macro lenses such as a 100mm or 180mm are better for insects because these lenses allow you to get further away from the subject where you're not likely to spook it.  50mm/100mm/180mm macro lenses with a 1:1 reproduction will all produce the same image, it's just as the focal length increases you will be further away.  100mm lenses are very popular because they double as a great portrait lens.

    go on to youtube and do a keyword search for macro photography.

    What is the point of not reading YOU assignment but instead posting every question that YOU are supposed to answer based on YOUR reading assignment here? If you do not want to learn photography, do not take a photography class.
