The first thing that popped into my head when I saw this Long Horned Beetle was that it looked like an Ox.
Tech Specs: Canon 70D (F16, 1/250, ISO 100) + a Canon MP-E 65mm macro lens (almost 3x) + a diffused MT-24EX (both flash heads on Kaiser adjustable flash shoes). This is a single, uncropped, frame taken hand held.
Technique: This one is really simple -it was just early in the morning and the beetle was lethargic, temperature around 16C. I'm focusing on the leading edge of the beetle's mandible and rolling the camera toward the critter's left eye.
