Spiny spider under porch roof

Post by rjlittlefield »


This subject is from almost exactly one year ago -- a spider on my porch that I shot for one of the old Weekly Challenges. "Spines" I think it was.

Anyway, the picture disappeared from the old forum some months ago, and I've been waiting for some good motivation to rework it.

Carl's recent questions about stacking provided that.

This shot was stacked from a live subject that was simply gracious enough to stay completely still for minutes at a time. Camera was mounted in fixed position on a mini-tripod, stacking was by tweaking the lens focus ring. Details are posted here in the technical forum.


Canon Digital Rebel, Sigma 105mm macro at f/11, stacked using Helicon Focus.

This is odd, I photographed a spider sometime back which was in a similar position. I guess this is how some spiders rest. Definitly has a multitude of spines. Thanks Rik. :D
