Jumping spiders are the coolest to shoot

133-MTP macro-20150412

These little guys are so much fun. At about 3mm long they are far from menacing. They just jump around looking like they are havingĀ fun in the flowers. If you could go as far as calling a spider cute it would have to be a jumping spider.

Canon 7D, Kenko Tubes, 50mm 1.8 + macro diopter filter, coupled with my home made lighting setup.

One of the things I love about macro photography are the colours. Not just the subject colours but the colours in the whole image. When shooting macro I always look for anything in the local environment that can be used in the background. A flower, a leaf or even a rock.
