Itsy Bitsy Spider

0528RainD-14

It’s been a long stretch with no bloggin’ so today I decided to catch up a bit. I have been über busy as of late with Grad shoots and funerals, plus and impromptu road trip with my boy. So I haven’t been doing much recreational shooting. But this morning after another glorious rain, conditions were perfect to do some raindrop chasing. The D800. For as much as I LOVE my X100s, I won’t soon part from the full frame glory of 36 glorious mega pixels. The color and quality of the images is really superb. Whilst wandering around the yard, I noticed a nearly microscopic spider. And thankfully, she (we’ll call her Charlotte :D) cooperated and I was able to nab a couple of images. There was a slight breeze which really sucks for macro photographers. I was already at IS0 3200 trying to keep a high enough shutter speed to freeze the motion. Tricky business. But super fun! Gotta love Macro. 😎

Bonus Video! BTS of the complete and utter gong show Macro Photography can be in the wind. Or breeze. heheheheh… 😆

Raindrop Remnant

I guess there was a big storm last night. I wouldn’t know. I slept through it all! 😉 But the tell tale signs were there in the morning. Ground was wet, raindrop remnants on the leaves. I looked out at our patio this morning and noticed that one of our potted plants had some pretty cool drops that were left over and evaporating quickly. I grabbed the picture mill and a flash and nabbed a couple of shots. It’s another one of those small world micro shots. They’re cool and often overlooked in the modern day haste of the world.
