..a new category has been added here called macro.. i’ve been leaning towards doing macro now because i’ve not much to shoot here nowadays especially when i can’t roam around the place a lot.. but we do have a lake here and a fair amount of trees and bushes to explore so let’s see where that’ll lead me..

..so far, for shooting bugs 1:1, i found it difficult to shoot in available light because of the limited DOF, so i’ve created a DIY ring light and it looks promising (i haven’t used it on this spider though, it’s just your regular flash)..

..here’s a 100% crop of mr. spider..
