Oh what a wicked… thing a spider’s web is to photograph!*

October 18, 2013

Hides in plain sight!

I saw this spider’s web a few days ago, but the darn things are all but invisible in bright sunlight — good for the spider. When I saw fog this morning, I knew this was my chance, assuming it was still there. It was, but even in fog, when the world is all midtones, a spider web still does too good a job of blending in.  But, if too much bright sunlight on a clear day is a problem. A camera’s flash on a foggy day is the solution.

To flash or not to flash, that is the question
