Just sharing a few shots of this big and beautiful jumping spider. She was really friendly and curious. Quite cooperative too for a jumping spider :D
All images shot with a Canon 40D, Canon MPE65 1X-5X macro lens and Canon MT24EX Twin Flash with DIY Diffuser.
Is she cute or what? :)
Notice the two catch lights in each eyes of this beautiful spiders? That's a big clue that twin flash was used. You can see how different light sources - speedlite with softbox vs Stofen-based twin lite diffuser vs concave diffuser - affect the catch lights in this post.
Do check out the latest concave diffuser that I have been using since March 2010 to diffuse the light from my MT24EX. I'm loving it!
