    Bryan.....mmm...must take note of the composition. Without it, the photo will look messy or inbalance.

    This species don't take flash well, so at night is not really a good timing to shoot them, unless you got a big soft box.

    Flash is to strong on the right and burn it belly, it will become unnatural as light always fall from the top in the nature.

    For composition wise, the dof will never be enough at this angle, either you go parallel or you stack it.

    More breathing space. Those legs are touching the edge, it let view feel that the spider is been pulled out of the frame.

    One must always remember, we are doing natural photography, so not always necessary to go as close as possible.

    Also, try rotate the image 90 degree clockwise for ease of viewing.

    Btw, it is call Scorpion Spider because of it's shape.

    Thanks shifu~!

    Thats valuable critique~!!

    Agreed with you that its never a gd time to shoot this at night with Flash as ur primary source of illumination due to their reflective surface in the eyes esp.. And Flash on the right was not diffused enough (SB600 at 1/4 power).. And gd thing u pointed out as we shooters sometimes forget abt how nature works.. all i think of is how to light up ur subject.. hmm.. will take note gg forward.

    Atually tats a awkward angle to go into, and i am not well equipped in terms of illumination (only have a $2 daiso torch which i dumped it bk to the drawer the moment i reached home..) And on the left side of where i m shooting from was a steep slope with muddy waters, dare not try go down as the place was pitch dark.. So cant get parallel to subject.. Shd have taken a few more to stack but was slow and the thought of shooting the long horn beetle got the better of me.. Else i wil taken a few more...

    Use the leading lines of the leaf... help to guide attention in towards the spider.

    Try rotating it 90 degree anti-clockwise.

    Let the view feel the mushroom reaching up then dropping down.

    Thanks Leong.

    Like Zac had mentioned, a few degree clockwise will have nice leading lines.

    Same problem, too tight.

    Wah, very siong, so long haven't really give C&C in writing.

    Be prepared to go into mud if you want this.



    To be frank, most of the shooters in CS are parks and garden shooters.

    Leong, actualy i thought so also.... try rotating it but doing so will crop off one of its hind legs

    So still photographer fault fro framing it too tight in the 1st place

    Thanks for ur time in C & C~!! Mus jot down all these pointers and hope to improve in our future outings
