Day 26: The Specimen

This is shot no. 6 in the Fear Series. The kids have been nurturing their very own “amazing growing spider” over the last several days, each day watching it balloon to new, astonishing sizes. “Oooooh….ahhhh,” they say every morning when they’ve noticed it has expanded further. Spidey started out about the size of a quarter and has expanded considerably, so that was a dollar well spent. And now, he is the inspiration for Day 26 of my 365. I decided to take a break from my strobe today and try a little alternative lighting. I downloaded an app called “Flashlight” to my phone to experiment, and here is the result.
Shot Specs:
30 sec @ f/11, 50mm, ISO 100, Flashlight App “green” screen @ 60.00/sec. (Hz) with 100% brightness
How I did it: Spidey’s jar is in my macro studio with a black backdrop. I turned on my Flashlight app, set it to “green,” and set the jar on top of it.

  1. One of the creepiest parts of “Alien” and “Aliens” are the face huggers in lab bottles and juice. Same fear as this shot.
    I use the ‘flashlight’ app a lot, it’s great (but a battery suck)
