A spider and his dinner

By Amber_Ashes
This photo was taken in 2004. As i was walking outside my caravan I spotted this little fella. I find spiders quite amusing, and found that he/she also had a little parcel next to him/her which i'm guessing was his/her dinner.hehe so I tried to capture it on My digital cam, unfortunatly my camera wanted to focus on the spider or the background and so I couldn't figure out how to capture the web Sad I also had no tripod so it was hard to keep still! Any tips greatly appreciated Smile

Hi Amber

Reasonable whiled life pic but I don't know if your digital camera is capable of what I'm going to suggest.

For these kinds of shots, depth of field is very important, the spider and its web should be in focus.

Also the shot is lacking in colour, if your digital camera can do fill-in flash I would experiment with it. You will find then the spider will not drift into darkness as much.

Keep up the good work.

Its a good shot, just a tip, but if you reduced highlights maybe 10-20% you would see a bit more detail. Welcome to EPZ. Spot on! Click!!!
