Yeah, his photos are always top-notch, flat light, great depth, super-clean, rock solid macro focus... Kinda like his bots. They look magazine/catalog ready every time, don't they? I +rep'd and raised ya a box as well, not just for sharing that battery mounting method (which is right up my alley) and the bot itself, but also for the photo quality. Thanks for pointing that out, Meta. They were so nice I didn't even really think about how much was invested in photographing them.
I don't take that kinda time for my photos here generally, but I'm an avid photographer. I would love to see you write a tutorial on photographing this stuff. Although I know the techniques, I'm just too lazy.
