Thread: Tangled Webs

  1. #1

    Tangled Webs

    I shot this web to use as texture backgrounds in composite images. The web was in the corner of a door opening with an outdoor light behind. The fuzzy fire/mist was produced using a hairdressers mist spray gun (lens got wet..but thats what what UV filters are for). The difficult part of this was getting a clear image from the web. The exposures were fairly long and the web shivered with the slightest air movement.

    I was hoping that someone else would say that first! Thanks, Kay!

    Good work Steve. I really like the last 2 and the use of negative space. You do that very well. They would be very good pair on a wall.

    Thanks for the comments guys. How does he do it? With more patience than he is normally endowed with The web was framed in the back door. It was very dark outside but the light above the back door was providing indirect light on the web. AV mode, tripod (my very solid and heavy antique Bilora Stativ video camera platform), spot metering/focus on the web and a long wait until the web stopped quivering. As I said above the mist/fire is achieved by spraying a fine mist from a hairdressers spray during exposure.

    Good work Steve. I really like the last 2 and the use of negative space. You do that very well. They would be very good pair on a wall.
    Thanks Peter. The last two are my favourites also. The first 2 were from a small batch shot to use in composite images.
