By mic5cott
Light switch in a seldom used building.
The building is absolutely full of cobwebs and spiders webs.
Any suggestions on how best to light cobwebs is much appreciated.

Please view LARGE, thanks for looking.

Good composition and great choice of an unusual object to photograph. You'd have a field day in my house!

I haven't tried photographing cobwebs but I imagine uplighting with a spot or softbox against a black background would work well.

I wouldn't have thought of taking this shot but the light and detail make it. This could be colour or monotoned and you'd not know the difference.

I would recommend a regular flashlight to lighten up the spiderwebs. Very nice and almoust creepy feel in this one.

I agree with Denka, My husband uses a flashlight to take pic of spider webs and he also takes them at night. some water can also give a different look.
