Hi John,

Gorgeous spider, are they a common species?

Can you share a bit more info about the shots, what magnification were you working at and was there and cropping involved?

May I ask why the 1/250 shutter speed with the tripod? Is there any particular reason why you did not just handhold? It is just out of curiosity, since 1/200 is ample to freeze action while handholding, I am curious as to why you chose this shutter speed for a tripod shot.

Thanks for sharing the pictures

Martin

Hi John,

Thank you Martin, and no they are not. They are a decidedly uncommon species (first one I have ever seen!).

Hi John,

Sure. Both were shot at just over 1x magnigication, and I would estimate a 15% crop was involved with each, but not much. I use Adobe Lightroom 3.3 for my raw editing and always crop proportionally to the original image ratio. I then export (in the ProPhoto Color Space) to Photoshop for revision on the .tiff files, after which I convert to the sRGB Color Space, shrink the image, and convert to .jpg for web viewing.

I always use a tripod, and I use the 250 shutter speed simply because jumpers almost never sit still, and because 250 shutter speed is the highest I can go and use my flash. I probably could have used a 200 shutter speed, but I just crank it to 250 by default.

Thank you! On the second shot, I placed him on an aging avocado leaf for added coloration and effect :)

Cheers!
