Day 31: Spiders
365-Day 31 on Flickr.
This is shot no. 11 in the Fear Series. I am happy to announce that my camera did not die during yesterday’s shoot. She’s still alive and kicking, after what was an apparent battery snafu. Today’s shot is one main shot with a few sections of other shots pasted in for more spidery goodness. This one didn’t turn out like I wanted, particularly since I was shooting the entire time with my ISO set to 1600 on a pretty old camera, hence the excess noise in the dark spots. The Horror!
1/10 sec @ f/22, 22mm, ISO 1600, Canon 480EX II between me and the wall and pointed at the ceiling.
How I did it: My strobe is on the floor in front of me at an equal distance between me and the wall and pointed at the ceiling. Just before the shutter clicked each time I threw handfuls of spiders into the air.
