This photography takes a long time but is worth it (if you have the time and patience, you need at least an hour ideally two)
I thought that the first two were of a Cyclops but it might be something similar

Cyclops from the pond. The real size is 2.35 mm, magnification is 3.78

(that is including the egg cases)

Do you transfer subjects to a dish first?

It depends if it is something that looks best from above like the cyclops it is in a small plastic container with a little bit of wall paper paste in to slow it down.
According to this book it does not harm it.

For the phantom midge I used this

It is two photo frames from a shop called the range, I used a leaf as the background. If I had found a beetle or dragonfly larva I would have tried both set ups.

If I had a lot more time I would do this a lot more, it just takes 30 minutes or so to set it up.

Any idea if those are nematodes (or even better, horsehair worms!) in that midge?

...and a beautiful shot, btw!

No I think that is the internal structures - but I am not really able to judge.
