I utilized the techniques in ' . substr('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', strrpos('//www.dpchallenge.com/images/user_icon/21.gif', '/') + 1) . ' DrAchoo's Insect Photography Tutorial.

I placed him on a leaf and used green place-mats as a backdrop. I used two Square Perfect soft-boxes for light.
