It has been a busy month at our household and I haven’t had time to get out and shoot much. Below are some of the activities that kept me moving for the past few weeks.
While out in the backyard, I stumbled across a spider web in one of the bushes. It was currently dinner time for the little arachnid.
These were taking with the Fuji X-E1 and either the 55-200mm or 18-55mm Fuji lenses with a Raynox 150 macro adapter. A Fuji EF-42 flash was on camera. The apertures were around f/16 to f/22. The little macro adapter does a very good job of adding macro capability to the non-macro lenses. Since the spider web was about 6 feet off the ground, I had to handhold the camera while balancing on a chair. A tripod to steady the camera/lens would have been awesome. There was also a slight breeze that was blowing the entire web back and forth, which made shooting rather maddening. It was a fun experiment though. I just hope this guy stays outside of my house.
