Today’s image is all about the background!
When I first noticed this teeny-tiny spider, I was on the opposite side shooting in the direction of the bright sun, attempting to capture the threads of the web as they glistened like golden strands. They really were quite stunning but, try as I may, the background color and pattern was simply yucky no matter what angle or aperture setting I used. Sigh.
So, I moved my setup to the other side to see if the background improved. To be honest, I really couldn’t tell as now the sun was over my shoulder making LCD viewing virtually impossible! All I could do at this point was shoot away and hope for the best.
No idea where all these interesting colors are coming from but I am not one to question life’s little photographic surprises! I love how the web looks like some cosmic galaxy spinning in the background. Pretty darn cool, huh? 🙂
