Black and Yellow Garden Spider

By shadowman6866
So I used some of the feedback Ive been getting when I did this close-up/macro. Would love any feedback on how you think this came out. I use LR with any post-production needs that I have. Im still learning all the things that I can do with LR but am trying to get the picture right the first time so there is little to no need for post-production. Thank to all those who have viewed my photos and I just want to say that all the critquing and feedback was great.
Also just wanted to say that the ISO of 3200 was an over sight on my part, was doing some experimenting with the camera and forgot to recheck it, rookie mistake.

I always reset the cameras to my standard settings at the end of every shoot. Otherwise you will do this kind of thing. Even so, your EXIF suggests little light, so how you would manage this with ambient at ISO200 is difficult to imagine. It looks to lack a little sharpness as it is. He appears to be static, so you could use a slower shutter speed and a tripod, then focusing very carefully on manual.

Macro is difficult. Depth of field, point of focus, camera movement, exposure all work against each other. A steep learning curve, but that is why many use ring flash or it's derivatives.
