Have you constructed a rat scale photo-stage for these pics?
Like this but only like a foot wide?

It actually works quite well. We have the camera set up on a tripod and with a cable release attached. I wrangle the rats and Jem takes the photos.

The background pieces are actually quite hydrophobic so any pee just beads up and we mop it up with a bit of bog roll.

Maybe, but the pictures look great, so it works (I'm sure the photographer being good helps too)

It does work well. I was not making fun. I really like the pro-quality look of your rat pics.
