Thanks, again, Mark.
You are right ... those are some awsome photos. The article on techniques and equipment is certainly informative and relevant.
Cheers,
Robin.

Hi Windrowe, as promised here`s a bit of a follow up to my earlier posts, took the following 2 pics today.....theyre in B+W mainly due to the fact the shed wall where the spider was , was covered in fluro orange spray paint so the colour pics looked pretty horrible.. :roll:
Took them with the tripod 2 legged setup and a homemade bounce reflector i`ve just made for the cameras onboard flash....which allows the flash to be used very close to the subject without shadows occuring....

Hi Rob,
I realised Bob was a member when he posted his recent pics the other day....thanks for the kind comments, I feel my pics have a long way to go til they reach the standard of some on here though......but theyre improving slowly i think..

Hi Beth,
Well as much as i`d prefer to be shooting butterflies at the moment, these were the only forms of life i could find worth shooting today....first time using the tripod technique on "living" subjects so thought it worth posting the results as theyre relevant to Robin`s and tinosa`s questions earlier in the thread.

Thanks, Mark, for the spider posts and all the helpful advice. The detail you have captured is something else!
I wonder how spiders decide which eyes to use & when?
Robin.

Hi Robin, you`re more than welcome. I`ve no idea about the spider`s eyes but I find them fascinating creatures, although seeing them up close like that you can understand why plenty of people dont like them.
Forgot to mention the last pic was taken at 14x zoom, into the digital zoom range.

Very good spider shots Mark. I can see you have achieved good control of the DOF.
