Looking pretty feisty in that second shot.
Nice pics, Colin. I wonder if there are any Nex users in the Congo? Natives there claim there is a spider that grows to five feet across, and missionaries to the country have claimed to have seen them. Now that would be one heck of a Pic-of-the-Day!
Sure are a lot of bugs in your area.
Great pics but you're starting to freak me out with these bug shots.
You said you want more claude?
It's amazing what the NEX-7 sensor can do. I took this shot with the Panagor 90mm macro in late afternoon at about ƒ11 iso200 1/250. This spider was very small, this is a 1:1 shot. I'm trying to get a feel of how to use a flash more effectively and I screwed up here. These settings were fine for the grasshopper I was shooting seconds before but the spider was under some brush and the flash didn't get through well. I had live-view turned off, so I didn't realize until I chomped that I badly under=exposed.
Here's the original file
And after changing the exposure in Lightroom.
Love the 2nd shot looking right at you mate very nice pose. All looking darn good with nice details.
All the best, going fine here.
Also a good example of what LR can do. Nice pic but scary.
