Day 60: “The Gold Bug”

This is shot no. 8 in the Literary Series. Today’s shot is from another E. A. Poe story, “The Gold Bug.” I’m not as much a fan of the story as I was turning this huge bug finger puppet into the story’s namesake.  Here’s a link to the story if you’re interested:  http://classiclit.about.com/library/bl-etexts/eapoe/bl-eapoe-goldbug.htm

Shot Specs:
10 sec @ f/5.6, 45mm, ISO 100, Canon 480 EX II @ 1/8

How I did it:  I shot this is in my macro studio with the black backdrop. I aimed my strobe straight down in the plane in front of the skull from the top of the studio. This one is pretty heavily cropped.
