Photographer's Note

As you know canon SX 60 HS have a 0cm macro mode, taking photo in this mode is Practical in controlled situation with lighting equipment . . so this way is hard .

Another method is Macro Photography using Telephoto :
Using telephoto for this kind of work offers advantages : the risk of disturbing your subject as you compose your shot is much reduced , Also, given the extra distance between the camera and the subject, you are much less likely to cast a shadow over your subject and have a lot of freedom with the lighting you can employ to light the subject both natural and flash.

Due to the extreme focal length, the risk of reduced sharpness due to camera shake is higher. Therefore, it is imperative to use a tripod and remote shutter release/self timer of camera to try and limit lens/camera movement.

Be aware of the depth of field. Using extreme focal lengths at such close distances can reduce the depth of field to fractions of a millimetre. Therefore, to ensure the subject is sharp throughout, use a small enough aperture to ensure the depth of field extends across your whole subject.

Switch the lens to manual focus. If your telephoto lens/camera as an AF/MF switch, switch it to manual focus and compose/focus the shot manually. You may find that when focussing manually, the minimum focussing distance decreases meaning that you can get closer to your subject, increasing the magnification.
