There are several things to consider for close-up photography.
First, set the camera to Macro mode. There's a slide switch on the left of the camera near the USB slot. For close-up shooting slide it to the flower icon, for normal shooting slide it to the mountain icon.
Camera vibration gets magnified when shooting close. Put the camera on a tripod or other stable support. Use the self-timer for better stability, since the 8025 won't take a remote control.
Getting close to the subject may cut off light. But don't use the built-in flash except as a last resort. You may have to provide additional light, or you might get by with reflectors.
Visit your local library. They'll probably have at least one book discussing close-up photography. If not, browse a bookstore.
