Or go outside and look for dead subjects, and just hantam, haha. Soon you'll learn what works and what doesnt.

I haven't tried it personally myself, but I'm thinking maybe extension tubes + close-up filters??!!!

You get very very close, and using diopters help increase magnification signficantly. Extension tubes will just let you get closer, but some bugs will just scurry away if you get close. My shots are mostly non-crops, unless it's for composition.

I dont mind getting close. I find it more stable when i'm nearer to the subject instead of a far zoom lol. or maybe i'm to use to my prosumer camera before this lol...
