Itsy bitsy venom

The Spider-series

Something different, yeap its a frigin spider!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'm not a fan of creepy crawlys but I could help myself when I saw this little fella. I decided to use two of my flash guns for this one, one from the bottom and the other as a fill-in. The blue and dark toning is influenced by the spider-man villian Venom (as U know I'm big on that sorta stuff, maybe I should do a super-hero series.) In case U were wondering Venom is also the villian for the upcoming spiderman 3 movie (can't wait).

Your input of todays shot? what do you think (even if U don't like spiders).

I've got an interesting spider shot 2moro.

The lighting is top notch Asiko, well done. If spiders do have eight or nine eyes, I think you may have blinded this little fella. Great shot. mal

With you on the Spiderman 3 too, but after my Superman Returns experience, I'll not allow myself get too excited.
Very, very nice. Always amazed at the detail you're able to capture.
sk: thanx dude, I don't think Spiderman 3 will disappoint, I loved the first two. if u illuminate something well, it will bring out detail

Amazing shot. The colours really highlight the sinister nature of all spiders - incase you cant tell they scare me silly. Great shot.

simply great shot. The spider is now on a disablity pension for blindness but well worth it.
sk: LOL LOL a spider has loads eyes, he can prob still use the rest (thats bad)

If a spider never looked scary before, now it does. Beautiful shot.
