    firstly it is "Macro" not "Marco"

    looks like you are trying to shoot stuff that are nearer than the len's minimum focusing distance
    in simple layman's terms, the lens cannot focus that close

    solution:
    1. Get a close up filter
    2. Get a macro lens
    3. crop your image
    4. reverse mount lens setup

    You mean macro? You cannot focus close objects due to the minimum focusing distance. You lens is not a macro lens so you cannot get a true 1:1 macro. You can try extension tubes, macro filters or reverse lens if you do not want to get a dedicated macro lens

    Get a $25 close-up filter and you'll be able to shoot "near stuff"
