I don't know if I qualify as a "pro" but you can hit the links in my signature for tutorials and my blog (where I give away all my "secrets" for free). Also available to answer any questions you might have.

Thanks for all the tutorials on DA, I will read all of them.
Even though I know some of the stuff, I love reading first hand tutorials. :D

You can buy a reverse lens adapter and screw the front end of a lens to the camera body this turning it into a close focusing lens albeit without aperture control (you have to select the aperture in stop down mode before removing lens from body and that is the aperture you will be using).

...and then try to put the plane of best focus on your target, with the stopped down lens.

I like to keep my gear as simple as possible, so I can let the subject dictate how I'm going to shoot it. Too much equipment and your kit will determine what you can photograph and when. So here's my current rig with an explanation of how I use my flash.

A simple field studio using a small wood clamp and some artificial flowers to keep the background from being black.

I apologize for my voice in this one, there's a lot of trees blooming in my yard and my sinuses are killing me. Just a quick video about looking for opportunities.

A nice set of video tutorials. Take care of that voice. :-)

Due to the shallow depth of field and generally small subject size you can use your computer monitor as a backdrop to quickly test colours/patterns for photographing static subjects on your desk.
