Can you explain how anyone would go about doing that while making it look like it was never there (like in his pics). There isn't even a shadow.

That is done using Photoshop's two very simple tools: eye dropper tool and brush tool. You use the eye dropper to select a pixel close to the spot where the item you want to eliminate is, then you use the brush to paint that color over the item. It's not easy to make it look flawless so I do not suggest you doing this until you're more comfortable with Photoshop. Like they say, walk first before you run

Sure You can see minimal processing is the key. In the picture with my puppy, one of the most important thing was for me to rotate the picture so that the deck is parallel with the frame of the picture. Other than that everything else was just adjusting the sharpness and the color of the picture to how my eyes saw it at the time it was captured.

the D40x doesnt have a built in auto focus either. so you would also need to buy lenses that have the AF built in.

you can also use (and i recommend) using the clone tool, and then cleaning it up with the eye dropper/brush tool

great write up by the way. and explaining the rig shots is increadlby helpful.
