macro photography

Using digital camera, one can take very good macro pics . The lighting and its directions are important.
here is the photo of sugar crystals. i will tell the method of taking such pictures
1] select suitable size sugar crystals, say 1mm cube
2]place a small quantity on a table with black back ground( rose wood table is good, or put a black paper on the table)
3] set the mode to "macro"
4] flash light cannot be used for such a small distance. So use pen torch light from a suitable angle.
5] set the camera to "shutter priority" mode and set the time of exposure to 1/125 sec
6] shoot several photos by varying light direction and distance.
