p.1 #1 · #556 Nature's Umbrella


I was out walking yesterday and saw that the rain from earlier in the morning had been stopped by the intricate lacings of the funnel web spiders.

I dashed home and grabbed my Nikkon 200mm and went back to where I saw them. I started shooting from above at first then remembered the FM assignment and wondered what it would look like shot from underneath the webbing.

I crawled on the ground and pointed my lens into this dry little den. I tried catching it with a deep DOF but was frustrated. So I decided that it might look cool if I used focus stacking. This image is a compilation of 24 shots all taken at f/6.3 and assembled using Helicon Focus 4.2.9.



Hope you enjoy!
Bob
