Not a fancy composition or anything, just practicing some higher magnifications.

Handheld, 28mm reversed on about 25mm of tubes.

Thanks guys.

I say 'warming up' not to be cocky, but I wasn't happy with how the spider was off to the side. It was more of an excuse than anything, lol.

I've just upgraded my rig to accommodate some more magnification, so I'm starting to experiment with that. I need a brighter flash it seems if I want to get any closer.

I'm just using an old Sunpak 1600 held off to the side on a side grip.
