My front porch spider has reconstructed her web, but so far only has the radial spokes completed. I found by holding a flashlight at different angles I could highlight the spokes. However, I had to use flash to capture the spider, and she is horribly overexposed. Any suggestions on how to get both the spider and the spokes equal would be greatly appreciated.
Canon Rebel, 1st photo is at 55mm, second is at 18mm. 1/60 at f/3.5 on both. If I went to manual and closed down to f/22 or so, wouldn't the flash just flash brighter?
