The other day I had a request for a photo of spiderwebs to go with a newspaper article. I had a few in my archive, but I wanted to see if I could come up with anything new – goodness knows we have enough spiders in our garden right now. The morning was gray and dry, though, so the webs were barely visible. I took out a spray bottle of water and misted the webs until I could see them, then lined them up with a dark background and tried a few shots.
The newspaper ended up choosing one of my old images, but I liked how this one came out.
One thought on “webs”
I love this image! The color contrasts and the combination of the crisp forground/blurred background is wonderful. I would not have thought to mist the web. Great idea! I’ll have to try that sometime.
