Thank you Blazey, AnotherHobby, Peachii for the compliments!!
NWA, that's awesome! And gross.
KFryman, you will be able to. Just get good equipment, fertilize as you should, and practice trimming, moving groups around to see what looks good in what location. Just like most things it's all about the practice and developing the eye for it.
Marko and Samee, there really is nothing secretive. I play with the lighting sets for the pics before I take them, make sure that I have little ambient light for whole tank shots; for "underwater" shots, I hang fabric around the lights so I don't get any sort of weird reflection. Otherwise, the tank is mature now, much easier to fertilize, and fairly easy to photograph. Just a healthy tank with awesome lights and some unique bulb combos. It sure as heck isn't my picture taking abilities!
I ended up taking 120 pictures that night as well, and ended up with 61, so it does help that I have a variety to choose from, at least.
I'll post a few dozen pics over the next few days. Just to forewarn your eyes, NWA.

Alternanthera sp. "mini." Not so "mini" right now.
