Nice lures! Most digital cameras have a macro or close-up mode that allows you achieve focus when you are close to your subject. It is usually denoted by a flower symbol.

When taking pictures of baits the best advice I can give you is to use a tripod. Especially if your an old coot like me who tends to be a little shaky.

Nice looking baits by the way.

Yeah tried that. I am using a rebel xti

That's a nice camera! How close you get is going to be determined by the lens that you are using. Most general purpose lens will have an MFD (minimum focusing distance) that is too long for you to get close to your lure unless you use extension tubes. One way around this is to pull the camera far enough away from the subject to get the focus confirmation beep and then crop the photo tighter afterwards. A tripod is a good suggestion, although I don't use one myself.

I agree with Thunnus64, shoot within the range of the camera and crop. Plenty of pixels in modern cameras.

I have developed a rim light for this kind of photography. It is like a ring flash, but just LED lights that you switch on and off. This totally eliminates all the shadows. I primarily use it for insect photography.
