Gallery of Thomas Shahan - Amazing macro shots

Thomas Shahan on Flickr

I came across this guy's gallery on Flickr and I'm impressed with the quality of his macros. To my surprise, he's also a Pentaxian: looks like all his shots were taken on a Pentax K200D. Maybe he's also a member on the forum, although I couldn't find

Take some time and browse thru his gallery, it's huge and it's amazing.

Yes, we've seen Thomas's work through other threads here in the past, and indeed it's a marvel what he's capable of doing with a few reversed lenses and a diffused off-camera flash.

He spoke at our camera club a few months ago. He came right out and said that he's not really that interested in photography. It's simply a way for him to document the spiders.

Sorry to resurrect an old thread, but there is an interesting article about Thomas' Spiders in National Geographic Magazine on the flickr blog.
