Well I found a jumping spider, so posed him and messed about for about an hour, then let him go on his way.

Got some intreresting images, will have to think of more ways to shoot the little scamp as he is still knocking about in my room somewhere.

Click them for Bigger images and details etc...

Will be editing a few more ones soon as my PC cools down, as I got him into many strange situations and sets and will stick them images up here as well.



Spiderman on Spiderman





1st Class Spider




EDIT

heres two more I edited, need to sort thru them all as I took a lot, havent stukc them on Flickr yet, not sure if I like them as much as the two images above.

This first one was shot on a flashy hologram box, very hard to get it right as it reflected the light onto the spider and he was totally white.


Disco Dancing Yeahhhh!




This one is just little spider walking about on my hand

Nice spider and backgrounds. Try not to step on him while he is roaming your room.

A domesticated jumper, I love the unique backgrounds, and excellent detail on the little pet.

Added two more images to the first post, 2 more differrnt images I think.

Thanks a lot for the comments, I tried something slightly different and it seems they work ok so I will have to find new things for the little guy to play on, I have many thoughts running around in my head.

I got him to jump about the place by just a piece of paper and I would put in down near him and they jump away from it, or attack it, so you can get him to go where you want most the time. Sometimes I picked him up on a little piece of paper and placed him on things also, he didnt seem that bothered about it and just skuttled away at the end. He is on the floor somewhere at the moment so he is hard to find, I am sure he will be on my white walls again soon then I know he is around :|

The first two shots are absolutely "first class"!!!. I really like the unusual back round as it is different from what we are used to. I'm not very fond of "disco Bob" (third shot).
