Not bad mate but if you really want that "macro" look with a shallow depth of field, take the photos with nothing close behind the lure... i.e stand them up on their hooks then get the camera down close to them but horizontal rather than vertical... have nothing behind the hooks for a metre or two then snap away. The lure will be in sharp focus and the background should be nicely blurred :)

Nice pics mate, nice little lures too! ;D
I sorted out a hook/jighead for those placcys I bought off ya, I'll let you know how I go this W/E.

Cheers for the photography tip too BaitThrower
