Some of you guys take some great pictures of your baits but I seem to struggle really getting the picture to show the bait well. Are there any tips out there or things you do with your camera? Lighting, flash, background?

You know, I have tried taking pics of my baits with a digital camera and they are ok but nearly all of what I do now including the images on my web page were done with a scanner. Just lay the bait on the scanner, leave the lid open and lay a background over the top of it. I buy my background material at a scrapbooking store. You can get backgrounds of rocks, sand, and anything else you want. It's very hard to beat a scanner in my opinion.
Here is a 16" sucker pattern I painted last night and layed on the scanner.
