The Fraggle Report~ Spidey edition

When practicing photography, a piece of advice that is often given, is to do a study of something, take pictures of it at different angles, with different lenses different times of the day.  So I did the first two yesterday morning. All these webs are the work of one busy chap. I used my fuji XT1 with 18-55mm zoom, and 60mm macro.

  3. It is fun to study one thing from many angles. The most mundane can become quite sublime. Dew-covered spider webs are really poetry – and you caught them wonderfully.

  4. I really love them all, but the first one with the cones is soooooo amazing. Apologies, I am so behind with your postings (& Miss Kathy S) 😞. I will go through each & every one I missed these last few months. I am sure I have missed some brilliant images.

    The spider did a lovely job of creating a beautiful radiating web, and you did a great job of capturing it. I’ve tried to do these types of photos as well. What time of day and what angle of light paid the greatest dividends?

    1. Morning or evening the best time as the sun is low in the sky . Morning best for dewdrops on webs but must confess I misted these with a garden spray as it wasn’t cold enough for dew last week. 😊

        Ooh! You’re a smart one 🙂
        I hope that the spider didn’t mind the extra bit of water.
        Anyway, the photos are stunning and I’m truly inspired.
        Cheers!

  6. I like the compositions and colors and the balance between in-focus and out of-focus areas in various light conditions. Amazing how much potential these lenses have in the hands of a fab photographer like you. Awesome series, Fraggy.

    1. Thanks Reinhold , the macro is a bit temperamental but it does a grand job, the 18-55 is awesome for a kit lens and still my main go to lens.
