This little lady was perfectly willing to just sit there and let me get *really* close...
I was going for short depth of field and a hair count.
I have what I consider a very entry-level compact (Samung PL22*), and have used it to great effect photographing spiders and other tiny things.
What I did for this one was to set the sensor to ISO-100, macro mode@11mm (63mm), centre weighted metering, spot focusing and locked and let the camera do the rest - exposure was 1/60 sec at f/14.1. Lens to subject was about 20cm.
What really surprised me with this was that the web was captured with such clarity... that's never happened to me before!
*My other camera is a Panasonic Lumix Olympic, pictures out of that are very noisy but the camera is passable at HD video...
