The secret is two-fold: light and distance (lens to subject). When shooting in macro mode, it is important to keep the correct distance to the subject. Some cameras won't let you take the shot if the camera can't reach focus. that's very handy. I'm not sure your camera offers such a feature but if it does not, that's one thing you must be aware of. As for light, it helps the camera's focusing ad metering systems and consequently images will be properly focused and exposed.
