Creepy and Crawly

Macro photo of a spider

Sometimes the mood takes me and I break out the macro lense, extension tubes and ring flash to hunt for insects hiding around the flat. Living and dead, I’m fascinated by all the tiny details revealed.

Getting this close brings it’s own problems, especially if you’re hand holding the camera. While using a tripod would make it easier to get the focus where you want it, for me it’s very restricting in the fluidity of exploring an object.

The dead insects etc. are interesting in their own way. Details of their decay that would normally go unnoticed, are brought to the fore.

Sometimes, missing the shot – for whatever reason – can be serendipitous, giving a creepy image like the one above.
