Details on the sac

Theme: Crawler

Been really busy the past couple of days and no time to shoot new stuff so I am looking to my archives to process old stuff.

Do you like spiders? I personally hate 'em, but I couldn't help but capture this fella. For those details you know I used a flash. Insects can be very annoying to shoot, they never sit still. More crawlers 2moro.

Suby wanted to know how I did my previous shot. It was first overexposed with studio lights and then the contrast was boosted dramatically in PS curves. Because the background was white and plain, the images could be easily merged.

I'm also not a fan of spiders but you caught it very well. Now the question I assume others are wondering too, is your subject still alive or was it disposed of after the shoot?
sk: after shooting I left it as I met it............ promise

I don't mind spiders as long as they're outside, or on somebody else's blog!

This is a good picture, plenty of detail and good colour too

Did you know that there is atleast one spider present within every person's 2 feet radius? (SOme are pretty small too, so possibly harder to notice) A nice lady recited their life cycle so nicely, I've started having a liking for them spiders... I don't view them as creepy crawly creatures meant to squashed anymore. Except for black widows...

Anyway, back to the shot tongue Very cool capture, I like the details and background choice (not that you chose it... or did you pick it up and place it there)
