Tiny spider in the window
Posted By: kskjon, 05-06-2007, 07:20 AM

Took this photo of a spider in my window. Super-Tak 50/1.4 reversed.

I REALLY need to get me a proper macro lens sooner or later

It is hard to get the focus right but it got nice colours. There is a Swedish guy who use a K10D with reversed lenses with great result. Have a look at this. - ant Digital Image Details

You got that right

I more or less put the camera in burst mode and tried to "bracket" the focus. A D-FA 100 would probably be a better approach, but a reversing ring is slightly cheaper.

Well, as Eddie said not a "scientific" photo. But it works very well in an artistic sense, great colors, and I like very much the play of light.
