So you want to shoot some fancy Macro pictures, and don't know where to start? There are quite a few ways to achieve a Macro photo, lets review some of them:
1) If you only have a point and shoot camera, you will probably have somewhere an icon of a flower, if you select it your camera will try to focus at the minimum distance it can.
